The Mighty Dnieper
The mighty Dnieper roars and bellows, The wind in anger howls and raves, Down to the ground it bends the willows, And mountain-high lifts up the waves.
The pale-faced moon picked out this moment To peek out from behind a cloud, Like a canoe upon the ocean It first tips up, and then dips down. The cocks don’t crow to wake the morning, There’s not as yet a sound of man, The owls in glades call out their warnings, And ash trees creak and creak again.
Who hasn't heard of Ukraine these days?
It is a European country with a rich culture and history (for example, remember Bohdan Khmelnytsky to Taras Shevchenko and Lesya Ukrainka).
Ukraine has a rich historical and cultural heritage. There are many higher educational establishments, theatres, libraries, museums, art galleries in Ukraine. It’s also famous for many outstanding writers, poets and musicians.
Ukraine is a member of the United Nation Organization and takes part in the work of many international organizations.
But now Ukraine is in a terrible situation - a state of war... The Russian Federation has attacked our country!
The neighbor with whom we tried to be friends... Our peaceful, flourishing Ukraine maintained peaceful and friendly relations with all neighboring countries as best it could.
After all, what is a good, neighborly (primarily human) relationship?
Above all, it is communication, support, caring, etc. If you have someone to rely on in this life, kindness doubles. Kindness never betrays, never leaves in trouble, always helps.
As you know, Ukrainians are Christians and believe in God. One of the biggest holidays in Ukraine is Easter.
Easter is the feast of Christ’s resurrection. Easter (in Ukrainian: ‘Velykden’ or ‘Paskha’) celebrated on each first week after vernal equinox and full moon.
In Ukraine Easter is called Velykden (The Great Day). In Ukraine Easter has been celebrated over a long period of history and has had many rich folk traditions.
In 2022, Ukrainians will celebrate Easter on April 24.
To give a little joy to those in need, we ask for a little help.
We are not asking you to do it forcibly, you can leave this page in peace, but amidst the sea of grief that has poured into our country, a small drop of joy would be very welcome.
If you haven't left and you have a chance, we ask all concerned to transfer only 0.01 BNB to this cryptocurrency address: 0xd516cBC7e302E1c54672a926aC15bda6155F5534
Just 0.01 of this can be done by anyone. It's so little. But we believe that there are many good people in the world, and all together we do good!
In conclusion, we would like to present a wonderful passage by the wonderful writer J.R.R. Tolkien:
Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness, and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it'll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo...and it's worth fighting for.”
Peace to you and your families!
With love, from Ukraine...
