Doom scrolling the news in Ukraine for the past weeks has been soul crushing. President Zelensky and the Ukrainian people have been totally awe inspiring as Putin relentlessly attacks. One widely shared photo shows an elderly woman handing heavily armed Russian invaders sunflower seeds – telling them “Put sunflower seeds in your pockets so they grow on Ukraine soil when you die.”
