Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
Our mayor has put the Ukrainian flag on the town hall.
What a horrendous time. On the French side of my family, almost every generation lost people to war. My great grandfather Charles died of injuries sustained in the war (WWII). His father-in-law, Adolphe, my great-great grandfather also died of injuries sustained in war (WWI). The Spanish side of my family ended up leaving the country in the 30’s because of the destruction and atmosphere of war. Lives upended, families split apart, loss — death.
I hope these sanctions work, but I have a niggling feeling that Putin being a sociopath means the likelihood isn’t great.
