Power is very dangerous in the wrong hands. What is power; the need to feel superior, to hurt innocent people including children that have done nothing, to elevate yourself above everyone else? I just don’t understand the need for MORE of everything. Why is Russia doing this to the people of Ukraine? Why destroy something that you covet? What good is it going to do to conquer a place and its people after blowing it up? Momma Said, “Too many questions and not enough answers.”
Throughout history, man has destroyed entire civilizations, the Mayans, the Incas and the American Indians. There is still evidence of their existence but it was greed that brought these great people to the brink of non-existence. We have lost so much culture to man’s need to conquer. I just do not understand why so many peaceful people have been killed just for the sake of another’s need for power.
What Russia is doing to the people of Ukraine is a sure case of genocide in my eyes. What did these people do to Putin? I am not really up to date on the cause of him doing this but I think he is just a paranoid crazy man. There has been a mass exodus of over a million people, what are they going to do when their homes and workplaces have been destroyed.
I am just at a loss for words for the people of Ukraine. Putin is claiming that they are under Nazi control and his goal is to cleanse the country and President Zelensky is number one and his family is number two on his list. How can Zelensky be a Nazi when he is Jewish? Momma Said, “May God shed his light on the people of Ukraine and keep them safe.”
