Image Details:


This photo was captured in Aberdeen, South Dakota, USA. From the window of our RV I saw this sunset, the clouds above turned bluish in tone and color and at the middle was the light coming from the setting sun. So dramatic! When I downloaded the image in my computer I rememeber something, and I checked it…and it resembles the flag of Ukraine.

At the middle you can see the trees which I considered the people of Ukraine who are in pain, suffering from lack of foods and clean water. Some died due to the continuous bombardment of Russian soldiers. Mostly are suffering from cold temperature. I know how it feels living in an evacuation centers. I experienced it when I was young. I affirm my strong disagreement of your aggression of Mr. Putin.

To the people of Ukraine stay strong and keep fighting! Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath!

Please Russia stop your aggression!

Stop the war!

Give peace a chance!
