Former MPS teacher in Ukraine sees fallout of war, wonder of rebirth

Lisa R. Parker

At the starting of the war, my spouse and I gave King Edmund and Prince Caspian an aged chair to participate in with. King Edmund and Prince Caspian are rams on our farm southeast of Kyiv in Ukraine.

As these two old warriors rammed and rammed and rammed, I imagined that their play was a battle involving the Ukrainian military and Vladimir Putin’s empire.

The chair is now in pieces, but the war the Russians initiated proceeds, and I am not particular which region will experience the very same destiny as the chair. I want to think that it is Putin’s Russia, but the Russians are still sitting down on their thrones — significantly less stunning thrones, perhaps, because of to sanctions, but they are still sitting down there even so.
