There is some trouble going on in the Ukraine. I don’t pretend to understand what’s totally going on there but it seems there is some serious political unrest in that nation. The government is in turmoil as its prime minister has fled. Russia seems to be saber rattling in the Crimea region. I hope things settle down there and that there is no return to a cold war situation we found in the 1960’s and 1970’s. We shall see what happens. Peace is always best.
This situation in Egypt has gotten scary. Hundreds are dead in violent protests over their former president. We have seen the unrest there since the Arab Spring of last year. Egypt is a political and cultural place of importance in the region and the world. Pray for peace and reconciliation.

An adviser to Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi said Wednesday that a military coup was underway, that tanks were on the move outside Cairo and that communication with the president had been cut off.
This it’s serious. May they find peace in this political chaos.
