I filled up my gas tank yesterday, but I’m not going to complain. When innocent people are being displaced from their homes or losing their lives, I consider myself lucky.
Would I stay and fight? I don’t know. I’d like to think I would. I probably wouldn’t have a choice. There are a lot of non-choices being forced upon the Ukrainian people, all replaced with have-tos. Have to leave. Have to pack up just the necessities. Have to be separated from your family. Have to fight. Have to put your life on the line. Have to kill. Have to stand up to a bully because if you don’t, it only empowers.
I’m glad I have easier choices. I feel for those who don’t.
