The Ukraine War

The Ukraine War shocked the world when there was a sliver of hope that the Covid Pandemic will eventually be unfatal in 2022. We can only imagine the human misery by reading staggering numbers of destruction in human life, dislocation, and loss of property. We can only hope the war ends and negation of peace begins as soon as possible. And I hope I did not misunderstand Tolstoy’s message on war that war is immoral.

online submission portal and choose “Racism of Omission” at “step 6” of the submission process. Click here for more information.
