Watching the shocking footage from Ukraine in the last few days, I don’t think many of us living in peace and (perceived) security in the South Pacific can truly imagine what it is like to suddenly find oneself inside a warzone… so far outside my realm of experience, anyway. Sending support to everyone under siege in Ukraine right now.🇺🇦✊
