The Rocks Cry Out

Writing for Peace condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine and calls on all combatants, there and across this wounded globe, to lay down their weapons.

In every war, it is the innocents who suffer and pay the price for the hubris and greed of those in power. If you can help, here are some organizations seeking donations.

The events of this past week bring to mind Maya Angelou’s poem, “The Rock Cries Out to Us Today.”

Your armed struggles for profit
Have left collars of waste upon
My shore, currents of debris upon my breast.
Yet, today I call you to my riverside,
If you will study war no more.
