    Celebration of Independence Day in Ukraine

     
    Today's celebration of Independence Day was like never before! So many people were wearing national clothing! Spontaneously here and there crowd sang Ukrainian Anthem, cried out as one voice "Glory to Ukraine! Glory to Heroes!" People greeted each other. There was a very tangible sense of celebration of something VERY significant. Many people had tears in their eyes. This year we have fought for our independence and continue to fight now. So many have laid their lives for free independent Ukraine. We will never take freedom and independence for granted!
