Art for Democracy II

Support Democracy in Ukraine -- All Proceeds Donated

created by Angel

Painting inspired by and painted while listening to:
Музика: гурт ГРИНДЖОЛИ & радіо "Західний Полюс" Повстанська пісня

Разом нас багато
Нас не подолати!

Фальсифікаціям. Ні!
Махінаціям. Ні!
Понятіям. Ні!
Ні брехні!
Ющенко, Ющенко!
Це наш президент.
Так! Так! Так!

Разом нас багато
Нас не подолати!

Ми не бидло
Ми не козли.
Ми України
Доньки і сини
Зараз чи ніколи
Годі чекати
Разом нас багато
Разом нас не подолати

Разом нас багато
Нас не подолати!"

(Dan has the translation online.)

Your effort is highly appreciated - still, I wonder wether I (we) as a European can really understand what's going on in the Ukraine. It seems that some people especially in the US are eager to turn this whole thing into a post-cold-war topic, which is a rather foolish simplification.

I've been watching your and John's comments with great interest. On a less substantive note, I just wanted to say that the color really brings your blog to life -- if/when the time comes that the orange is no longer "needed," you ought to continue to use some color or other.

Hi, pentamom!
It's good to see you. I've been meaning for a looooong time to do something pretty with my blog, but everytime I sat down with the CSS codes I saw stars. And not the good kind. I guess I needed a real push to actually do something. I need to add some tulips, too. *g*

Thanks, Bjoern, for your support. In the beginning of this whole thing, I was frustrated when people tried to oversimplify what is going on here--many in the US making analogies with the Red/Blue divide. Others talking about EU/EU vs. Russia. Or other comparisons. It bothered me that people didn't seem to "get it." Now, though, I'm seeing that those who aren't here in Ukraine are just trying to understand it using their own experiences as an outline. Some of these comparisons are pretty faulty, but do provide people with a structure in which to evaluate the news from Ukraine.

It's been amazing, really, to see the outpouring of concern for the people of Ukraine--from all over the world and just about everywhere on the political spectrum.

Nice artwork! I hope you will continue to post more.

"Now, though, I'm seeing that those who aren't here in Ukraine are just trying to understand it using their own experiences as an outline."

It is very difficult to try and understand something that is so far removed from your own daily life. It is even difficult sometimes to understand one's own life. But take comfort in the fact that many people are paying attention.
The more information comes out, the more people in foreign countries will understand what is happening in your country. Personally, I have learned so much already over the past week. And this knowledge brought Ukraine closer to me.

I've got the winning bid right now for the lovely painting. Since the money goes to a great cause, I won't be too upset when I'm massively outbid.

Keep up the good work,
