TRUE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT.
KYIV Children′s Choir singing ′The Carol of the Bells’ in Carnegie Hall to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of its first performance there
It was written by Ukrainian musician Mykola Leontov. . The children′s bravery, singing in Carnehie Hall as their country is beset by invasion, is awe-inspiring and humbling. No doubt some of them have experienced loss of loved ones and homes, while practising in the dark as Russian missiles hit their citiesand villages.. Or their families are in danger back in Ukraine, their parents, siblings, in a war zone.
If anyone deserves love and mercy this Christmas it is the children of Ukraine.
May it be so.
