What did Frankie say?

Some days it is alright to feel down. Some days it is ok to be angry. Sometimes you look at the future and it seems really bleak. Some days your problems are insignificant. Today is one of those days.

The actions of one man today will impact the mental health of one nation for many years to come. Many of those impacted will be too scared to close their eyes tonight in case they have their lives cut short in their sleep. Many of them will be impacted by the death of loved ones over the coming days and months.

Many people will die because of one man.

Those who are impacted and those who die will have no choice in the matter. You can’t go to therapy or take a pill to make things like this better. Their fate is dictated by where they were born or have chosen to live.

When I wake up tomorrow I’ll let my existing worries stay asleep. I’ll worry for the world and for those impacted in Ukraine by the actions of a man seemingly hellbent on starting a new World War.

What made this man the person he is today is impossible to imagine. It is scary also to think what he is capable of. I don’t think you can cure a psychopath, but I hope the world can minimise the atrocities he attempts to enact.

The world sometimes accommodates evil until such time as good prevails. I hope that is soon.
