The threat of nuclear conflict has loomed over the world for the past week as Russian troops rolled into Ukraine, while the world looked on in shock. But surprisingly for a time of crisis, Ukraine decided to harness the power of Twitter and memes to highlight the nation’s plight on the world stage.

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
