The chicklets and others at The Coop…made a sign for the people of Ukraine. They know what it’s like to be wounded and in the hospital. So they are sending love to the people and animals who are not well.

Okay, so…

As theartblogger54 reminded me, atrocities are always taking place around the world.  They never stop.  Ukraine is just getting more press/visibility.  We never really stop killing each other, and everything else, including the earth Herself.  I don’t know anything about Ukraine, so maybe they are bad guys too.  Who knows?  I don’t.  We thought America was something it never was too.  We slaughtered others.  Killed Native America, kidnapped people from Africa and sold them.  We did horrific and terrible things.  We still do.

And there will always be greedy, power hungry people who never have enough.  Hatred, even if unfounded and simply handed down from one generation to another, is a strong emotion.  People use it to hurt others.  We slaughter animals on a daily basis.  Other countries slaughter their own people, as well as animals.

Horrors take place all around us.   I’m reading a book right now, and the exact thing that’s happening in Ukraine now,  was happening when hitler was making his move.  Everyone was telling governments to stop him before he got started.  They said he would move through Europe, but the countries remained neutral.  Well, we know how that turned out.

No one is going to do anything.  putin is going to run the show.  We have to accept the fact that bullies win a lot of the time, because no one stops them.  Everyone in charge is afraid of starting WW III, which could be catastrophic, to say the least.  The thing I don’t understand, is how much will we let him destroy, before we have no choice but to stop him?  Because I don’t believe he’s going to stop until that happens.

But it’s not up to me.  So, like a lot of things I have no control over, I’m letting it go.  People will die, animals will die, like they always do, at the hands of heartless, hateful people.  I just have an incredibly hard time “accepting” things as they are.  But this is a game between a few men.

Anyway, the picture of the bird has nothing to do with this issue…I just thought the bird was adorable.
