Many of you are watching the horrific war in Ukraine, where Putin is now intentionally bombing large apartment buildings, schools, and hospitals in crowded cities and you may be wondering what you can do to help. Besides your donations and prayers, the most important thing you can do is to help keep this horrific war in the news cycle – to maximize the pressure on the US government to increase sanctions against Putin and to help with the increasing humanitarian crisis. There are already over 1 million refugees and soon there will be millions more. They are mostly women and children who are traveling for over 50 hours in crowded trains with no food, water, or bathrooms, and then waiting for hours or days, in freezing temperatures, to be let into neighboring countries. I know such people personally. Though the numbers are staggering, it is important to remember that each one is a human life.
