General Colin L. Powell, former U.S. secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff died Monday, Oct. 18, at the age of 84. Born in New York City on April 5, 1937, the son of Jamaican immigrants, Colin Powell served in the Vietnam War and later became a four-star general. He became the first black national security adviser during the Reagan administration in 1987, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George H.W.Brush Sr. in 1989, and re-elected to the same post during the Clinton administration, and the first black Secretary of State in the George W. Bush administration in 2000. his life was full of legends.
The Powell family wrote on Facebook, “We have lost a wonderful, loving husband, father, grandfather, and a great American.” They noted that he was fully vaccinated. The family thanked the medical staff at Walter Reed National Medical Center for their caring treatment.
Powell reportedly had multiple myeloma, a type of cancer that hurts the body’s ability to fight infection. His death bears similarities to that of baseball superstar legend Hank Aaron, 86, who died in January just weeks after receiving a shot of the COVID vaccine, although the hospital claimed Aaron’s death was not vaccine-related.
Powell was the first public figure to die from a so-called “breakthrough case” with such a high reputation, and his death will cause more people to understand the dangers of the COVID vaccine and to stand their ground and refuse it.
