Wings Phoenix: Your money – a chance to avoid funerals

helmet

 

2014/07/16 • Act!, Help Ukraine

How can I tell you about the helmets… How to explain it… So that you would hear and help. And not only those who always help–our loyal and patient [ones], who pull from their inner core the most often, giving ever more and more while becoming more prudent with money. They, YOU, are my angels. Although no, not my [angels]. Our guys’.

How can I tell that I already have a dozen helmets in my house. With holes. With blood. With bone fragments. They are laid out and [keep] reminding me that our heads are so damn fragile, damn it. And a mine or missile fragment flies too fast. It breaks apart the skull, pierces the brain and creates trouble there. I also have 3 shot-out helmets: Polish WZ, German Schubert, and a new exemplar–Belgian Schubert. And there are 700 such helmets at a warehouse for me. No, not for me. For our boys.

And the money is needed. Very-very much money. We need to pay 1.4 million Hryvnias for these helmets. Of these, we have already paid 350,000 Hryvnias. And [we have] collected about 200,000 Hryvnias. But I still need 800,000 Hryvnias and 24 hours of time. Although no, not me. Our boys.

Or should I tell you about the funerals? Should I tell how our hearts shrink, us, mere civilians, ordinary volunteers?

Should I tell you about the horror of every morning–it is necessary to call up the doctors and ask how the soldiers are. And THAT horror, of THAT morning, when the “Grad” shelling of Zelenopillya took place [July 12]. Should I tell you about it? No, I won’t be able to. Or maybe I should post the pictures from there? YES–YES, THOSE WERE OUR BOYS!

But how many of us are there? Is there a lot of us? Unfortunately, no. A lot more people today will go to the movies and restaurants, go for a walk, go shopping. They’re here because the peace is here. Nobody shoots or kills here. Here, you don’t hear the piercing rustle of a flying mortar, here, the windows don’t shake from the discharge. It’s there after all, far away. And that is precisely where, far away, our living boys are now sitting in the trenches. 19 years and older. Someone’ sons, husbands, friends. And it makes little difference to them what excactly we are busy with today, and they truly have no choice. Or the desire to choose, the vast majority of them. They protect us.

And what about us? Can we protect them?

Money is REALLY needed. This [money] is not for uniforms or food. Although it is needed, badly, as well. It’s for the lives. There is an opportunity here to avoid the funerals.
