Ukraine has talent and so does the Ark!

November 30, 2009

If you like history and art then you will definitely want to take the time to watch the video in the link below. Ukraine definitely does have talent! Our kids at the Ark have tons of talent as well. This summer we had our own contest – “The Ark has Talent!” I have included several photos of the children displaying their various talents. It was a great time getting to see all their hidden talents. They thoroughly enjoyed sharing all the crafts they made and dances and songs. It really was a great time! And we can proudly proclaim – The Ark has talent!!

What the video depicts –

She begins by creating a scene showing a couple sitting holding hands on a bench under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear and the happy scene is obliterated.
It is replaced by a woman’s face crying, but then a baby arrives and the woman smiles again. Once again war returns and Miss Simonova throws the sand into chaos from which a young woman’s face appears.
She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad, before the image turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier.
This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer is looking out on the monument from within a house.
In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside and a man standing outside, with his hands pressed against the glass, saying goodbye.
The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine, resulted in one in four of the population being killed with eight to 11 million deaths out of a population of 42 million.
