Stop unnecessary war. Stop useless fighting and deaths. In a world where power and assertion trumps innocence and humanity, real problems are ignored. Instead of focusing on climate change and poverty, our attention is turned to hospital bombings and images of shattered children who just want to be with their families. Rather than going to school, Ukrainian youth are hiding underground while their country is mercilessly destroyed. Meanwhile, in Russia, citizens are censored to the horrors that their leader is inflicting.
