Horror & Antidote

I’ve been watching the destruction of Ukraine in disbelief. The horror of this war is no different than the horror of any war—children, women, the elderly, and the innocent are destroyed. This war was concocted by Vladimir Putin, a monstrous despot, to accomplish his sordid goal of restoring Russian imperialism. It’s impossible to watch the news without bursting into tears.

As an antidote to the war, I’ve been watching the confirmation hearing for Ketanji Brown Jackson for SCOTUS. She schooled multiple senators on the law and on how to be a judge. Miss Lindsey, Ted “Cancun” Cruz, and Josh Hawley looked like whining pipsqueaks. Which they are. Ketanji—brilliant, articulate, and cool under fire—has made me proud to be a woman.
