Obviously, I don’t know how to New York Times. Better link:
So, the Snake Island 13 and the old woman telling Russian soldiers to put sunflower seeds in their pockets was hard core, but this… She’s crying but she’s still going to point the weapon downrange at another human and pull the trigger. She might be afraid, or mourning her own impending death, or the death of a 19-year-old Russian soldier, but she’s still going to do it, and THAT’S hard core.
P.S. who knows how long this link will show the crying schoolteacher.
