We’re All Potential Refugees

Today it’s UKRAINE, tomorrow it might be where you are.

Humans are inherently destructive. We’re always looking for a way to eliminate each other. Power-hungry leaders amongst us, deranged Imperialists, and expansionists use war to achieve their dark agendas. And since leaders that are unafraid to unleash terror on innocent humans still exist in our today’s polarized modern world, it’s possible that regardless of where you are, you could become a refugee or be counted among the dead as happened in Afghanistan, Libya, and currently, in UKRAINE.

War and pandemic have things in common

When the virus popped up, it spread from you’d ever know where to every part of the world. We locked our offices and remained in our homes. We tried to stockpile food and water the way some Ukrainians did initially before they started fleeing from the incessant shellings.

It’s not a free world anymore. It has never been a free world where you and I are guaranteed constant freedom. Unbeknownst to many of us, our freedom hung in a balance. It’s tied with a tiny string and hooked to a shaky pillar. And we never can tell when it gets taken away from us by the power wielders that deliberately keep our land shaky and our future unpredictable.
