A common space for harmonic peacemakers
CALLING ON THE MOTHERS
This is a photo of a captured Russian soldier in Ukraine. Ukrainians gave him tea, food, and let him call his mother on video. I read today in several news outlets that the Ukrainian defense ministry has published telephone numbers and an email address to provide information about captured Russian soldiers. On Wednesday defense officials urged the mothers of captured Russian soldiers to travel to Kyiv to pick up their children and gave detailed instructions on how to retrieve them. This is different. This is warfare in the 21st century, in a wired world, and in a country unafraid to demonstrate a new kind of courage—one that values transparency, emotional intelligence, and compassion. One that appeals to the hearts of mothers and parents on both sides, one that reveals the real cost of war. I am not putting anyone on a pedestal, as I am sure darkness is being unleashed in some Ukrainians, because this is war, and war is a pathetic, outdated, brutal lack of imagination. But in general, my heart is wide open to the people and the leadership in Ukraine. May they remain strong and may they continue to show the world what big-hearted, kind-spirited, full-spectrum courage looks like.
