It is so sad what is happening now—another pointless war where the ambitions of a madman break the world. I never thought that we would be facing something like this in Europe, and I must say that it brings the darkest memories to mind.

Something like this makes most other conversations, like those about species being extinct or the future of humanity, disappear. My thoughts go to all who suffer. I hope that the war ends soon and we begin fixing the significant challenges facing our dear planet.

But here we are bombing each other without reason, activating nuclear arsenals, and arming countries to the teeth as trust disappears. What kind of world will we have after this?
