Pray for peace

“Pray for peace,” Monterey Herald – Nov. 9, 2022

Biden’s upset about enemies of democracy these days. He doesn’t want us to notice the bad news from Ukraine. Russia has destroyed about 40 percent of its power supply, meaning that large numbers of Ukrainians are at risk of freezing this winter.  The fact we’ve sent billions of dollars in weapons there seems to have only worsened the situation while Russia borrows more missiles from Iran.

This Thanksgiving I’m going to pray Biden sees the futility of wasteful weapons of war when negotiations for peace are needed instead. I’ll be thankful I have a warm place to live and sleep. I just hope Biden will focus on the same if he wants to help the Ukrainians, too.
