#STANDWITHUKRAINE (https://war.ukraine.ua/support-ukraine/ … official Ukraine website) says, “You can save lives, no matter where in the world you are.  A simple donation. A few clicks on your keyboard. A message to the right person.  Everything you need to help Ukrainians in their fight for peace and freedom – in one place.”

To the women …


The dead fight.  People dead in streets.  They fight.  They fight in me.  I am not dead yet.  –Unidentified woman near Mariupol, Ukraine.


Sing “We will lay down our souls and bodies for our freedom …”

This title is a line from the Ukraine national anthem.  Today, “our freedom” is not only the freedom of Ukraine.  Today, Ukraine lays down her souls and bodies for freedom everywhere.  She is on the front line of the fight for humanity.

Slava Ukraini!  Glory to Ukraine!  Gloire à l’Ukraine!
¡Gloria a Ucrania!  Ruhm der Ukraine!

What is happening in Ukraine is happening to humanity.   Are we still human?  Have we died yet?  The national anthem of Ukraine says that her glory and freedom have “not yet perished.”  Nor has ours, I hope, for we are all Ukraine.

#STANDWITHUKRAINE (official Ukraine website) “HOW CAN YOU HELP? The most important thing you can do for Ukraine now is to READ and SHARE verified information about Russia’s attack on Ukraine. “

I was greatly impressed that the nation of Ukraine says that the most important thing we can do for them now is to read and share information.  Think about that.  Act on it.

Good teachers always say that they learn by teaching.  Learn by sharing.  It really works, especially when you verify the source.


The glory and freedom have not perished.  And so they cry out so often, “Glory to Ukraine.”  So might we, to lift her up, to honor her sacrifices on the front lines of war on humanity.
