Raffle to support the Ukraine
Some of you know that I come from the Czech Republic (old Czechoslovakia, Slovakia boarders with the Ukraine), I grew up in one of those apartment buildings in Czech that look like the ones you see frequently bombarded in the Ukraine. My family still lives there. My family's last 4 generations have had to cope with 2 World Wars, losing our great grandfather in the concentration camp for speaking against the German invasion, my grandmother (my mom's mom) came from the Ukraine, then borders were closed and her town bombarded by Russians, when she went back it was level with the ground and none of her family to be found, Russian invasion, communists ruled our country till I was 8 years old, no travel allowed, no freedom of speech, people placed in jail or worse for speaking against the government, no capitalism, shortages of food and housing,... The history is repeating itself. The Czech did not have the financial means to stand up for itself and yet many tried, the will was there! It's easy to say, let them take care of the invader themselves, but practically that's difficult to do! After 100 years of frequently fighting off dictators and communists, it is very difficult to do. I see, I admire and I understand the will of the Ukrainians, but they need help. They need help now, not tomorrow. This is the least I can do.
What will you do?
When I was 16 I got to visit the Ukraine. I thought I came from a poor country and I always though that we didn't have much. My views drastically changed after visiting the Ukraine. While you may see modern cities bombarded in the news, most of the Ukraine lives off its land, by hand, not by tractors, by hand. It was like going 200-300 years in the past. How are these people supposed to fight for their freedom? With what in their hands? Hope is all they have and support is all they have! Let's make sure we give them enough support and the help they need!
