I have to say I have great admiration for the lady that interrupted Russia’s main news programme.

A protester against the war in Ukraine interrupted a live broadcast on Russian state television, telling the audience: “They’re lying to you.” The woman entered the studio during Russia’s most-watched evening news broadcast, holding up a poster saying “No War” and condemning Moscow’s military action in Ukraine.

Those left behind

A few days ago a friend of mine remarked on how we always tend to remember the soldiers who lost their lives in the wars for our country.

Then he said, what about his wife, parents, children and the effects it must of had on then?

In the future while we’re remembering the dead let us not forget the families and friends a soldier leaves behind every time he is away from home.
