Praying for the people of Ukraine and the instability of our world

Posted By on February 24, 2022


Russia, lead by the wicked Vladimir Putin, has invaded and attacked their neighbor on February 24th after massing their military around Ukraine this past year. They started the invasion with missiles and air strikes to all but eliminate Ukraine’s air defenses and are currently crossing borders from all directions with overwhelming military force. For students of history, it triggered thoughts of 1939 history as Nazi Germany expanded their footprint in Europe … as world leaders at the time bloviated and watched. We all too often discount and forget the past and as the Winston Churchill axiom goes, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”


The questions facing the west at this point is … “if sanctions and talks don’t work, will NATO, lead by the United States, be required to mount a military deterrent?”  And … if there isn’t a response to Russia invading a neighboring country … what message does that send to other adversarial countries consider the same (ie. China – Taiwan)? 


At this point, as a peace preferring citizen of this world, I’m praying for President Biden and that somewhere in Washington DC (and western allies) that there are stronger and wiser leaders and advisors that recognized that world peace comes from a strong America and a united West. Since the election, our enemies have noticed weakness … and an America (as well as Europe) with lousy leaders which have made us energy weak/dependent, internally divided and focused on advancing socialist Democrat policies that include social justice and wokeism. Will we as free, peace-loving people face this threat with united strength … or repeat history? 

First They Came For The Jews – by Martin Niemöller

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.
