I cannot help but juxtapose these 2 things. US and Canadian truckers screeching like school girls over (now mostly non-existent) mask mandates and their "rights"...with the men of Ukraine, led by their young President, grimly standing shoulder to shoulder in the street and fighting for their lives. Our nation offered President Zelensky safe-haven out of the country, and the President now famously replied "I need ammunition, not a ride". Here in America, where leaders are rushed into basement bunkers at the first hint of trouble (or inconvenience....recall Ted Cruz requesting asylum in Cancun during an ice storm), this type of wild bravado is only seen in anonymous social media comment sections. So to see a brave man, in real life, with everything to lose, willing to die to for his people and his nation, was frankly startling. America is filled with so many puffed up cowards we still don't really know what to make of all this. "We are still here", Zelensky told his nation in a grainy cell phone video filmed in the streets. "I pray that will be the case tomorrow."
