A Ukrainian man playing piano in the face of riot police.  The pianist is playing Imagine by John Lennon.  How many “terrorists” arm themselves to fight with a mere piano, a stool, some ivory keys and some beautiful chords.
Everytime we’re told that protests should be crushed, or we hear one of these iron fisted leaders of a country denouncing protests as being manned by terrorists, photos like this should also be shown to add a little clarity.  Like the photos of Ukrainian ladies armed with nothing but a mirror, held up in front of riot police with their weapons and protective gear, how beautiful a concept to shine a light on the human behind those masks and helmets, maybe remind them they are human or were once, or maybe are at the end of their shift when they go home to their own families.  What a powerful weapon that could be.
I wish all the normal people in Ukraine peace and a future free from power games and violence.
Rage against the machine but peace out ultimately.
