LIVE UPDATES: RUSSIAN-UKRAINE WAR
ALEX HOGAN: There’s a numbness that I think we’re seeing right now, but there will be lasting effects when we talk about PTSD for what people have seen. I spoke with a woman who said her train was shot. Others who said they heard the shelling, and they saw that, of course, that stays with you. But look at that crowd behind me. Everyone is crowded. They were all foreigners and many of them are now able to communicate and talk to each other about what they all just went through, everyone here leaving their country when just two weeks ago, they continued to have normal lives which I think also often people take for granted… There’s such an amazing human connection to see, and I hope that translates to our viewers because I think it’s a time desperate and difficult, and many watching from home feeling helpless not knowing what to do, there is the comforting side of this grief in the number of people coming together to help people in these trying times.
SANDRA SMITH: I think everyone understands what’s going on behind you, Alex, and it’s moving for all of us to see, and you’re in the middle of it all, and on International Day of wife, Alex… There are moms and aunts and daughters trying to get by, and they just don’t know what’s in store for them. But this strength, Alex, it shines through the TV screen.
