This morning Broderic, Bronwyn and I went to church in Kiev. Afterwards I decided to take my oldest two down to the center (referred to as Maiden) where all the action has been the past 3 months.
I took the cautious route by Metro, and approach the area from quite a distance out. The closer we got, the more amazing the scene. The streets our family has often enjoyed strolling down were completely jammed with army tents, seized army vehicles, and 1000’s of people making their way to the stage area. There were families, grandmothers, even small babies in strollers – while still unpredictable, it was a moment I think we’ll remember for the rest of our lives. A nation wrestling for independence – and the cost on display at every turn.
