One of the greatest heroes of Ukraine is not a president or a general but a poet, Taras Hryhorovych Shevchenko. We visited the university in Cherkasy on March 10 for the celebration, here are poems, music and thoughts from the students.
[a side note: In the Slavic world the middle name is the fathers first name and “vych” means “son of”]
We fly the Ukrainian flags and support these heroric people, but if you want to explore their heart and soul, read the poetry of Shevchenko. For less that $2.00 at Amazon, you can download The Poet of Ukraine: Selected Poems of Taras Shevchenko
