Fighting Our War

We can’t be distracted by any other agenda than facing this moment. We cannot let Vladimir Putin’s mistake in Ukraine go to waste, or we will forever regret it.

What can we do? We can come together as one, just like we have in other world wars.

When Putin sees division in America, he feels stronger and acts more destructively. If our two political parties cannot cooperate on common sense issues then vote to replace them.

At this moment, we don’t have the luxury of time, as events are moving too fast. Contact your congressmen and senators and bombard them with texts, emails and calls. Remember, the squeaky wheel gets the oil.

We also can all pull in our belts. Add more coworkers to each car and use less air conditioning/heating. Businesses need to keep profits low so as to not hurt the economy but rather contribute to these world conditions and the American people. Profiteers should be jailed.

We are not weak — our parents and grandparents have been here before, and we remember their stories.

We all can see what a dictator can do. Do we want that?

Our president must have the support of both parties, since he is fighting our war. He has brought the free world together. Please help this moment, as it will go down as one of the most important events in our lives.
