glimpse of humanity: we love you ukraine

Well, today I am happy to report that I am feeling hopeful. Watching the way that Ukrainian’s are responding to the invasion by protecting their city- life on the line- it is inspirational.

***I would like to add in a disclaimer that I am not qualified to speak on this. I solely am a human responding to world events.***

Sanctions have been in place but now we are starting to see responses from other countries that are demonstrating their support for Ukraine.

Not that this aid is making a huge difference compared to the scale of this attack, but we look at Germany, the USA and the UK sending medical aid and military hardware. Biden has also stepped up to the plate and made it very clear that there will be repercussions for the actions of Putin.

“Look, you have two options: start a third world war – go to war with Russia, physically, or two: make sure that a country that acts so contrary to international law pays a price for having done it…”

We cannot forget to credit those in Poland, Romania, Lithuania and others offering refuge for those who were able to evacuate. Per ABC world news, the UN is reporting that more than 150,000 Ukrainians have fled; with more than half to Poland.

I don’t know about you, but the videos of people stepping up in protest as well as the citizens of Ukraine that have been on the streets with soldiers desperately trying to keep Russian soldiers out of the capital has been keeping me stable. I came across this today and it was the breath of air I needed- go check it out!

Also…can we just talk about Anonymous temporarily taking down the Russian Ministry of Defense website?? No comment.

Please do yourself a favor and check out these pictures captured from the anti-war protests in Russia.

  2. Yeah, it’s definitely weird to see an actual war go on in this age. Kinda sad that we never truly does change. But among that, you also get great examples of humanity. Anyway, thanks for this post!

    1. I find that in my experience- my history classes pushed this strong rhetoric of societal growth. I specifically remember my history teacher telling me, “this stuff happened a LONG time ago”. They made it seem like WWI/WWII was ages ago which was simply not true. They also neglected to talk about the Second Congo War which took 5.4 million lives as well as other conflicts in the world that HAVE been happening. When I took a deep dive into the history the education system failed to teach, it just hit me so hard. As a result, it feels so surreal to witness these kinds of conflicts-especially add in this new age of war with social media. It’s so hard to get caught up in the devastation.
