Four Questions

чотири питання

What is Dave wearing today? Dave is wearing nothing out of the ordinary today: just a polo shirt and shorts.

What is making Dave happy today? Dave isn’t happy today. He’s been quite distraught since he turned on the teevee this morning and saw that Russia had begun an all-out — and completely unprovoked and unjustified — war against Ukraine.

“Now, the entire world sees clearly what Putin and his Kremlin allies are really all about. This was never about a genuine security concern on their part. It was always about naked aggression, about Putin’s desire for empire, by any means necessary.”

President Biden, as quoted in The New York Times

What is Dave’s inspirational thought for the day? Dave doesn’t have an inspirational thought to offer today, but he likes this quote:

“All war must be just the killing of strangers against whom you feel no personal animosity; strangers whom, in other circumstances, you would help if you found them in trouble, and who would help you if you needed it.”

Mark Twain

Does Dave have a personal connection to Ukraine? Dave’s great-grandfather emigrated from a shtetl in Ukraine to the United States in 1905.
