Quote to remember:

Through dark clouds on the foreign page
We looked at the heat-native sun
I chatter I heard from relatives by:
Freedom pounding in nashe windows,
For the Motherland got it, all of the children!
Sons! And what are we the same?
We would be unworthy
So we went to the rescue!
Go ahead, do not aglyadaytses,
Rather sabiraytses,
I'll be ready to go!

Father (Stanislav Bulak-Balakhovich)
