Seeing the cross country skiers drop to the snow after crossing the finish line and gasp in breaths of fresh air makes you wonder why someone like Vladimir Putin can’t put that kind of effort into running a state the size of Russia. What was wrong with his upbringing?
I know, the Russian ethos was still fixed on the greed of the Bolsheviks, who abandoned God for the aggrandizement of self. There sits Putin, his own little god.
It is easy for me to criticize, for I have suffered anonymously. No microphones for me. But I have accomplished in the stillness of the night. Nobody saw.
