Today I Am Burdened

Hi everyone, I have an URGENT plea for you...

 Let me tell you about V. Like Veronika, V is a teenage orphan in Ukraine.

Veronika's Prom is dedicated to spreading the word about the aging out orphan crisis in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. We have dedicated ourselves to raising funds for Veronika, that she may be adopted by her forever family.
Yet sadly, as of today, V will never get the chance to find her own adoptive family.
Today, V turned 16. Today, she aged out. She has become unadoptable.

However, V is still available to be hosted this summer! I am making an urgent PLEA to everyone who sees this post.

Will you please pass along this information and consider donating a grant or hosting V? Though she is not adoptable, a family could still show her love and be her mentor over the summer and as she goes to trade school after leaving the orphanage.

In Honor of Veronika, let's find V a family! This post is not just about one child. It is about every child. We have raised support for Veronika, that she would not age out, yet this is exactly what has happened today.

But we can still DO SOMETHING about it. Please, share this, give a grant, or be the ones to say "We will." Let's rally together to see V hosted, in Honor of Veronika. A host family would have to notify Jo Hershon by this Friday, the night of Veronika's Prom!

Go to the Facebook group listed above for more information.

And My Soul Ached

Please take time to watch this trailer.

I had the opportunity to see this documentary several days ago.

And my soul ached.

This is real footage from the Maidan protests that occurred from November 2013 to February 2014 in Kiev, Ukraine. Having been to Ukraine around this time, I can say that I have fallen in love with the country, the culture and the people.

I have celebrated with them. I have cried with them.

Even though I am not Ukrainian, I support them.

Their tragedies are my own tragedies.

Their heroes, my heroes.

I know that it may sound strange. How can someone feel so deeply about a culture that is not their own, whose people are not theirs? I do not know.

All I can tell you is this.

My heart cannot express its' sorrow.

A Requiem for Heroes...

As column of vehicles with the bodies of the fallen Ukrainian Soldiers are brought home, Ukrainians fall on their knees in honor and respect of their sacrifice. (Kolomiya, Ukraine. Spring 2015) ~Shared by Euromaidan Press
