Prayers for Ukraine and the World (Video)

Friends, forgive me for not posting in a while. I am working on a couple of fun articles that I will put up soon.

But at the moment, what an awful, hellish time for the world.

As we continue to struggle through the pandemic and hope for its swift decrease, we are now at the crossroads of war because, and I must be blunt, of Vladimir Putin’s greed. I do not blame the people of Russia; I know that the majority of them also do not approve of this war, but I do blame him, and the sickeningly servitude our former American president gave him in the last administration. I am sick with what is happening in Ukraine and I pray that somehow this will not escalate and cause more hell.

As a child I had hoped that by the 21st Century mankind would have outgrown the need for war. But as long as there are greedy people who only care about what will benefit them, we may never reach the utopia that so much of our fiction had hoped for and promised us. The utopian world of Star Trek seems farther away now than ever. But we must not give up hope, for if we do, all is lost. I still believe in hope, and the possibility that someday we will see the light of love and compassion. I still believe that good can overcome evil, and I always will.

I came across this video today of this beautiful song,The Prayer, and its lyrics seem more poignant today. No matter your beliefs please pray for Ukrane, for its victims, its children, for the whole world.

Whatever the future brings, I still believe in hope. Keep praying.

Celine Dion and Josh Groban sing The Prayer. The song starts at 1:45

One thought on “Prayers for Ukraine and the World (Video)

  1. I think something must have happened to Putin’s brain, maybe a minor stroke.

    I don’t think the old Putin would have been stupid or crazy enough to try to seize Ukraine outright.

    The difference between Putin in, say, 2015 and Putin now makes me think of the difference between the Khan of “Space Seed” and the Khan of The Wrath of Khan.
