For the past weeks, it has been so difficult to hold back sadness and rage
for the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
While various different forms of aids as well as economic sanctions are expanding world-wide,
it feels helpless and hopeless that no one, no country can stop the insane, appalling attacks,
leaving the people desperately, impatiently waiting for the end of attacks.

through your fingertips.
