Although I do have strong political opinions, I have not wanted to go there on this forum, however, what we are witnessing is a humanitarian issue that can’t be ignored. The unprovoked attack on Ukraine should be a wake up call for all of us. How can this be happening again?
It’s heartbreaking to see the Ukrainian people standing alone against an unhinged dictator with a heavily armed military sprawling out throughout their country. Seeing pregnant women huddled in a hospital basement, young women comforting their children in subway shelters, and older women collecting supplies and building molotov cocktails. Lineups miles long to flee the country and brave, under equipped men facing an enemy head on, in frigid temperatures. Is this 2022? The Ukranian people are to be admired for their strength and resistance against all odds.
I have no doubt this quote from the President Zelenskyy (when offered safe passage out of Ukraine) will be highlighted in history books in years to come:
Would I have the courage to stand up for my country? Could I pick up arms and fight in the face of adversity? I don’t know… would you, could you?
Will the worldwide collective positive energy channelled to Ukraine be enough for a miraculous David and Goliath ending…
