Letter: Ukraine and America

Posted

Ukraine’s powerful determination to preserve its democracy and its way of life no matter what has drawn a sharp contrast to what is going on here in America where a polarizing pull to drag us backward is distorting the very core of “One Nation Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” A well financed move to limit our right to vote, to secure the integrity of the vote, to place limitations on what and how we educate our children, banning books, our freedom of women’s right to choose. Horrific harassment of all kinds of minorities that aren’t “white” and the LGBTQ population in many ways, are frightening reminders of everything that Ukraine is fighting against!

We have a clear reminder every day that Ukrainians are dying to preserve their rights, that we must stand up for everything that America stands for and remember all the souls lost in our history, died to preserve what America stands for, and realize that once more we are being tested in a way that threatens our way of life and is dividing our country. What has happened there can happen here if we don’t  take seriously our responsibility and know we have to be a part of the work it takes to make our voices heard.

Suzi Badrena, Conifer
