“Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.” - Ernest Hemingway Today is Nazar Rozlutsky’s birthday. I have been following Nazar’s story since being introduced to him on Facebook by one of the Songs 4 Ukraine members. Nazar is a Ukrainian writer, poet, cook, and historian whose life has been completely upended by the Russian invasion. He now serves as a gunman in the Ukrainian army. On the eve of his birthday, he wrote a post that I’d like to share.
