Today with our friends at ActivateLabs and other people in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, we gathered outside the Ukrainian Embassy with artwork, candles and sunflowers for peace. Monica, a co-organizer of the vigil artist, whose family is from Romania made beautiful art including giant sunflowers as its the national flower of Ukraine.
“In Eastern Europe- even number of flowers are for sad events. Everyone is using the sunflower 🌻 to show solidarity for Ukraine. But flowers do not belong to a country so I wanted to free the flowers and have one chamomile that is the Russian national flower. Peace will only come when we stop diving and finding who or what is in and who or what is out.”
