It is truly unfathomable to imagine what Ukrainians have to wake up to every day with this inhuman bombing and violence raining down on them night after night, day after day. Thankfully, many are escaping this murderous attack by Russia and Putin by migrating over the border. Those who stay are made of finer stuff than many of us. Their bravery and determination never ceases to shame the rest of the world into acting on their behalf.
Even so, I would think that it is a constant battle for Ukrainians to overcome their sadness every day at what this monster in Russia is doing to them and their nation so they can get back up and fight for their people and country.
So this weekend’s music thread is meant to remind people about the emotional struggle even the strong and defiant people of Ukraine have to deal with each and every day. Share songs about the blues, dealing with hard times, and overcoming them personally or with the support of friends.
Now it’s your turn to share songs of sadness or comfort to remember the humanity and perseverance of our dear friends in Ukraine.
