I hoped that edition 50 would be a special one in a good way, but unfortunately Russia has decided otherwise, by attacking Ukraine.
This week my heart is heavy, as history unfolds in the east. People I know are at war, and it scares the shit out of me. All of them used to enjoy a peaceful life, and now they’re either hiding underground hoping to survive one more day and fighting for their country. They traded their mouses and keyboards for automatic rifles and Molotov cocktails…
The situation is incredibly tense, and this could clearly be the beginning of World War III… I’m no politician, so I will refrain from commenting about the international response and the details of what’s going on in Ukraine. Like many people around the world, I don’t know all that much.
What do I know is that we all need to do whatever we can to help Ukrainians RIGHT NOW. Letting them down is letting the free world down. I don’t want my children to have to go through what Ukrainian ones are going through right now. Many are losing parents, children, relatives, friends. They’ll be scarred for life. Not only that but their country is being literally destroyed. Re-building will take forever. Children are dying, and I cannot bear the thought.
I share Emma’s feelings:
