The world is in a dark place at the moment. What with the pandemic causing illness and deaths around the world, we have been subjected to being unable to be with our loved ones and effectively being under house arrest. Just when things seem to be getting back to some sort of normality we are faced with the terrible news of the war in Ukraine.
I can’t imagine what these people are going through. Just imagine having to pack up and leave your home behind not knowing what is going to face them. Often only carrying the immediate items you may need for the journey. Women saying goodbye to their partners trying to keep strong because they have children to keep safe.
Watching the news with the horrendous stories is heart-breaking. I think about my family, my grand children would be old enough to fight in the war, but they have children as well who they would want to protect and save.
The decimation of Ukraine has pulled on so many heart strings around the world and I know so many countries have come to their aid. The welfare of those displaced must come first. Their homes have gone, their hope is wavering, but Ukraine’s determination that they want freedom and want to win this war against all odds.
I send my thoughts to them, and each day pray that this war will come to an end. I know many people will feel the same.
Churchill said he wanted peace in our time. Let us all light a candle and ask for that to happen.
There will be wars and rumours of wars until mankind learns that we should all walk beside each other in peace and harmony.
Peace for Ukraine
Love and light
