PICK-YOU-UP

dressed in a ballgown with a tiara like Cinderella and the rounded pumpkin-like coach shows up a pick-you-up of a princess on the streets of Ukraine dreams do come true are they over now for another sister? she would have been your family weeping in the streets orphans left behind they were already behind but now…no one can reach them. God can reach them God sees this atrocity feels the pulse hell’s on the loose

I agree "God can reach them God sees this atrocity feels the pulse hell’s on the loose" totally! And we know who the devil is.

Interesting angle... Ukrainians were going about their 'ordinary' business in restaurants, bars, and ballrooms right up until the hour of the invasion. Clock struck 12; Cinderella had to run for her life...

True story. We have friends who adopted 3 and were going back for a 4th. The Mom is from the Ukraine.

As our stock market confirms, investors do not care about lives, they are concerned with dollars! Aloha!

Lives shattered and the pain unbearable. So very thoughtful of you my friend to remember them in this time of hardship. I believe they will overcome with goodwill and prayer like you express.

People play war like they are playing plastic chess pieces. Like you said, they are people.

This is powerful. It is so unbearably horrifying. I hate the wickedness, the horror the Ukrainians are facing. I am praying and praying but it does not feel like enough, I want to do something :'( It's so sad. God bless you Kim, thank you for writing this poem, you have done something, in writing <3

Thank you. After adopting the girls, they would show them doing something and say, this is what freedom looks like. Now what is to become of the children. Everyone has their own atory.
