Great article/interview w/ Ukraine’s First Lady, Olena Zelenska. As we celebrate Easter and the belief that all those who believe in “him” will be saved… At the expense of being judged, I just can’t help but disagree. Most of use make terrible mistakes (aka decisions) in our lives, and I do think the vast majority of times those mistakes are forgivable and redeemable. But that does not mean all actions are forgivable, and we must all live with our decisions/mistakes. For instance, I do not believe that those Russians who started and continue to wage this war are forgivable. They should not be “saved”. Maybe you do. Maybe that makes you a better person than me. But I’ll just leave you with a few passages from the article:
- until the last minute it was impossible to believe that this would happen…in the twenty-first century? In the modern world?
- Russia does not have mercy for peaceful lives.
- How to explain to a child why she is not sleeping in her bed? This is a test you would not wish on anyone.
- The line you are talking about was crossed on the first day—the first!
- People killed on the street. Not military—civilians! Graves near playgrounds. I can’t even describe it. It makes me speechless. But it is necessary to look at it.
- I hope we are not the only ones who see the message Russia is sending. This message is not only addressed to us. This is their message to the world!
- Russia knows that the West will not cover the sky, and this fact encourages it to commit atrocities.
- The main thing is not to get used to the war—not to turn it into statistics. Continue going to protests, continue to demand that your governments take action.
