Ukraine is being invaded.
We are on the verge of major war in Europe.
The Ukrainian President and former President are defending the capital city with AKs.
Our President is taking the weekend off.
I wonder what America would be like if we had leaders that were as resolute in defending our country as Ukraine’s are.
