just want to take a moment and recognize this sweet fella that lives across the street from my parents. He checks on them every day and has grown to love and care for them deeply. He rides with Dad to the store, helps him shop and brings the groceries in.. he cuts the grass and whatever they may need. Not many 15 yr olds would take the time to care and be there for elderly neighbors. When he saw Mom today he busted out crying and just held her tight.. what a blessing and just wanted to pass on something heartwarming instead of the sad news we see and hear every day
Monka (named after a Russian anti-personnel Mon-50 mine). She is with 58th Independent Motorized Infantry Brigade, a formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces in the war zone, Eastern Ukraine. She is so called because she is small and agile, always at the center of events. When Monka starts looking for shelter, everyone knows - soon something will happen, enemy artillery or rifle fire will start working. Monka shares with Ukrainian men and women soldiers all the severity of the war: mud, cold and danger. Also, their food, the best and tastiest bits always go to Monka. Monka sends good wishes to all of you and says that Victory is close.
