I am sure you have seen the news about Ukraine and I wanted to write my thoughts, carefully about this. Now what I am saying is simply my opinion and I just wanted to share them with whoever will listen. I would not wish war on any country, even if there are reasons, which I am sure there never should be, to attack a country, especially the areas where civilians are. Now, we hear all sorts of reasons why Putin is attacking and my post here is not about the reasons. I simply disagree with any country attacking another country, especially in today’s world. The thing that bothers me is that our government can pass a bill, or whatever it’s called, to give 13 billion dollars in aid to Ukraine, but it takes months, and sometimes government shutdowns to help the American people. I am not saying that we should not help Ukraine, and urgently of course, and yes, we are not under attack, fleeing our country, and you are correct we are lucky, but how many of you are feeling the cost of everything rising in our Country. Is anyone going to worry about the American people?
Housing prices are going up, gas prices are rising, food costs are rising, everything that is tied to our basic needs is on the rise. Once again, I know we are not under attack or fleeing our country, but after the war is all done and we along with other countries help Ukraine rebuild, who will help us the American people and all our friends that live here? It is getting tough to live and before long, we will see a rise in homeless individuals, bankruptcies, and possibly repossession of homes and autos. We are already seeing a rise in crimes across the country, people have been locked up in their houses for nearly two years and there is still a feeling of uncertainty in the air about many things.
The company I work for has started a fund to help our Ukraine neighbors, and I believe they have raised nearly 1 million dollars worldwide, if I am correct, so we are doing our part, but who will help us when this is all over. You see the news about Ukraine civilian casualties on the rise, the utter destruction of cities, homes, schools, hospitals, parks and so much more. Some videos show before and after pictures and the difference is scary to see – debris where a building once stood. I feel that this war on Ukraine is somehow all tied to some kind of business, someone or some country is getting greedy and found the pandemic to be a perfect cover to start a war and exchange money, at what cost = people. The sad thing is that on socials media you see so much hatred about the war, why it is happening, who to blame, and so on. It is sad to see anyone losing everything, fleeing, or dying because of some higher power deciding it was ok to attack a neighboring country. I think this whole war along with this pandemic is something someone, somewhere thought up – just saying. I am sure I will hit some nerves on this last statement.
Anyhow, thank you for stopping by and taking a minute out of your day to read my post, and I leave you with this thought, “what do you think about this war on Ukraine? Is it something valid (war should never be valid), do you think it was something someone made up that had another agenda behind it; what are your thoughts?”
