There are no words for the horrors that unfolded in Bucha over the weekend or for the atrocities that have been committed by Russian forces since the war in Ukraine began.
I’ve spent hours staring blankly at my computer screen, trying to write something – ANYTHING – to speak to what so many of us are thinking and feeling and questioning, but I can’t come up with a single sentence that does justice to any of it.
So I will simply say this:
Let us continue to pray for Ukraine.
Let us continue to pray for the families of the nearly 2,000 innocent Ukrainian civilians confirmed dead and for the families who have been displaced and separated from loved ones whom they may never see again.
Let us continue to pray for the countries and people and organizations caring for refugees.
Let us continue to pray for the Russian people who do not support this war and for those who are bravely condemning it.
Let us continue to pray for our global leaders as they make complicated decisions regarding how to stop Putin and bring an end to his war crimes against humanity.
Let us continue to pray for peace.
