    Great piece, Duane.

    Watching this unfold can have a cinematic quality to it that leaves one fascinated, but disconnected from the reality.
    The other danger is in just wondering what it means for us…
    I’ve been in communication with real people over there and praying for real people helps personalize the terror and amplify the realities they facing.

  2. Duane Arnold says:


    Many thanks. The only way that I can deal with this horror is to keep real people in the forefront of my thoughts and my prayers…

    I currently don’t know any real people in Ukraine, but the ones passing over the borders, and now landing in our local airports, cause me to stop and pray. I’m sure I will bump into a family in the days ahead as my part of California has always hosted large numbers of refugee families. I pray as I can and give as I can, I also don’t complain about the higher price of gas, as the Ukranian people are paying a much higher price for their freedom.

    “I pray as I can and give as I can…”

    It’s the most any of us can do…

    I’ve been to Ukraine a couple times and So know a few real people over there. Some of which I know quite well and some less so.
    I’ve talked to some who stayed and some who are now homeless.
    I’ve seen refugees on tv, this is the first time I’ve ever know any by name.
    Gut wrenching.

  8. Michael says:


    It’s gut wrenching even with the limited knowledge I have of some…it would be almost unbearable if I had the relationships you have.

    Biden slashed our oil production, hence the high gasoline costs.

    And like most issues, it can’t be summarized in a sentence or two.

    It’s complicated. Sloganeering and playing the blame game don’t help clarify things.

    “More oil supply could stop massive price spikes. But US producers won’t fill that gap”
