The calm, beautiful, brave dignity of mothers.
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.  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.  They are all the sons of mothers after all.
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.
