The Stan R. Mitchell report for 3/25/22.
Happy Friday, everyone! Hope everyone is ready for the weekend!
In Ukraine, things continue to go against the Russians.
Here are just three quick snapshots, which are quite revealing.
And besides these facts above, Ukraine has begun counter-attacking and taking back land. Here’s a great summary on those efforts.
I still don’t know how all of this will end, but I don’t think anyone can disagree with these two tweets.
I’m keeping today’s newsletter short, so let’s get to some motivation and wisdom.
And the first motivating thing I want to share comes from Ukraine itself.
I watch that video and I almost wonder, is America capable of such unity and greatness right now? I’d like to say we are, but we are just so divided. I almost feel like we’d have loads of Americans saying, “I’m not filling sandbags. The government should do that.”
Or, “If my party or candidate had been in charge, this would have never happened. I’m not helping out.”
Or even, “I’m not so sure it’d be so bad under the Russians… I heard on YouTube or Facebook (or some other stupid, unverified news source) that they’re actually pretty nice…”
I don’t want to be overly negative, but America needs to come together and unify, which is obviously one of the never-ending major themes of my newsletter.
With unity, there is almost nothing we can’t do. Take for example this small town in Ukraine…
Okay, I’m done harping on that. Now for some lighter motivation and wisdom.
And how about this incredible story?! Proof that you should never give up. There’s always a chance.
I almost doubted that story, but you can read about it here.
Okay, a few more.
That’s it for this edition. As a reminder, please be kind and endeavor to love your fellow Americans. We need to pull this country together, and that starts with all of us.
