I Am A Ukrainian, This Needs To Go Viral

I am not a Ukrainian. But, the creator of this video is and it should make us all feel like we are. Watch it. Share it. Send it to your representatives. It’s not your problem. True. But all of our collective voices might be part of the solution.

If our shows of support as Europeans and Americans are weaker than Russia’s desire for control, the political ramifications of that will be felt. This simple, but powerful message has not gone viral the way videos of cats and laughing babies do — and it probably won’t, unless we do our best to make sure as many people as possible see it pop up on their news feeds.

This woman is brave and her message is clear. I dare you not to be moved by it. TC mark

    A raw look at what is happening in the Ukraine, and indeed in many countries around the world. A fight for #freedom from the ruling class. It may not be your country, but it is our planet. What happens to one population can happen to all.

    The real work is done in Ukraine where activists build towards a (real) a free society, fight corruption and where they fight for human rights. Our only and best way to help them is by spreading their message. Our influence is limited but with great masses, easily mobilized by the internet we show that we care despite that limited influence. Share, tweet, facebook, reblog, inform yourself and show that you care. All these drops in the ocean might just make a difference.
