Caution, uncomfortable reading ahead, tighten your lap belts, and put your bias aside for the hard, bumpy truth ride that is coming…

First, war is terrible. I’ve seen it firsthand in Afghanistan, Yemen, and Iraq.

The current situation with Ukraine is especially troubling because it’s a clear example of a head of state sacrificing regular civilians as pawns on the global chessboard to advance a strategic position.

I have friends from business school and the YPO ( community in Ukraine and Russia.

If I have to choose sides, I personally choose no war and to side with the courageous President Zelensky of Ukraine.

So here we are in 2022.

We’re coming off the heels of a global pandemic and still killing each other.

Lead bullets, rockets, and fearing chemical weapons, or worse, a nuclear event.
