“God created war so that Americans would learn geography.” Mark Twain

Most Americans couldn’t find Ukraine on a map, until recently. Nonetheless, here we are, watching the Russian invasion of a sovereign country, Ukraine.

Ukraine is a democracy led by a democratically elected president. Although America shares no borders with Ukraine, we are all connected, intertwined souls on this Pale Blue Dot. Thus far, reporting reveals 137 people have been killed since the Russian invasion. There is nothing savvy or genius about killing innocent human beings.

“The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.” Carl Sagan
