If you ever have a chance to visit, VISIT.
The people are great.
In short, Ukraine reminds me of a ‘white Mexico.’ There are many differences, but there are so many similarities.
The jobs are almost non-existent. The roads are bad. You should always take those little packages of moistened kleenexes, just in case you need to wash your hands, or backside.
The people are not religious, but they are very religious at the same time.
Almost everyone looks like they are going to a funeral, until you start talking with them. Then they light up like they are at a carnival.
So, it is like a mix of Germany and Mexico and maybe Russia all in one trip.
It is like America was in the 1970’s or 1980’s.
Family, God, Country, fun, hard work, and the occasional wino. OK, there are more winos here than there were in the USA in the 1970’s.
Remember what America was, and continue to let the light shine.
My favorite memory was the Fourth of July celebration in Linden, Texas.
What is yours?
