                                  Kiev-2005
     Almost 60 years ago our Motherland was burning and shaked from the
  blows of tanks, powerful weapons, etc. 4 years these actions occurred on
    the Ukrainian territory, million of people suffered and died. But not
    looking on these, people reconciled with everything, went through the
  trials and reached the victory, reached the independence and freedom from
  the fascism. And it was the most important achievement that they could to
                                    get.
    The May 9 is well-known day for all Ukrainians. Even little children
      know this day  the day of the victory under the German fascism.
    We all have grandparents who took part in the Second World War, which
  was the Great Patriotic war for us of 1941-1945 years. Of course, some of
  them are not alive but we love, remember and respect them very much. They
 endured terrible sufferings and, listening them, we convinced more and more
    in that fact that these courageous, strong people are the real great
                                   heroes.
    Our grandparents always like to talk about these actions. They have a
  lot of memories and different stories. Its very interesting to listen to
              them and to image the pictures of that hard life.
    Id like to tell about my grand-grandmother Ann. She is the real hero
  for our family. She died some years ago? Her age was great. She was very
  strong woman, shes never cried and always helped o other families. When
   her family perished and her dear husband too, she perceived it without
 emotions, but Im sure that granny was very, very upset, and simply did not
 showed it. She was religious woman. Everybody, especially my father, always
  heard her opinion. Our family always remember her as the strong and very
                clever woman. And we try to be like she was.
     My granny Luda, her daughter, often tells me about her life and her
 exploits. They together went through the blockade of the Stalingrad. There
 was a famine. Hundred of people died on their eyes. Granny Ann got used to
   this and didnt pay a great attention. On the front granny worked as a
 driver. She transported milk to the solders on the front-line and the bombs
    and the hail of lead were flying under her head. My granny Luda was a
      little girl at that time and was near the mother whole the time.
     Everyone of us can tell many stories like this one. And every time,
  listening them, we feel the proud of our heroes. I must say that not only
     men fought for the freedom, but also women showed themselves as the
    courageous persons with strong will and character. There are a lot of
 soviet films about the war which evoke such feelings. We are proud of these
    people and are full of respect. No one of us did not go through that
                                   trials.
   Our country does not forget about them and every year we can watch the
 parade in the center of the Kiev to the honour of the perished solders. It
 is a great pleasure for veterans that they are remembered and beloved. This
 kind of the praise is the best for them. The fighters for independence will
    be remembered forever and for always. They are the heroes of Ukraine.
