As the world grapples with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and now the assault on Ukraine by Russia, we should remember Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German clergyman and son of a physician. He lived in Germany during the Nazi era, and tried to save lives by following his conscience.
That meant opposing fascism,the Nazis, Hitler, and trying to save Jewish people from extermination, which included the family of Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
For that, Bonhoeffer was arrested and executed, becoming a martyr for his faith and actions.

Thanks so much for visiting and reading. Yes he was, he left us a wealth of wisdom in his writing, but it’s still sad his life was cut short, how much he could have contributed to our world. I visited your site. Your daughter’s ankle looks like my husband’s did a year ago. I hope she’s not in much pain and heals well. She’s much younger than he is, so she should do well.
