floating, floating
in the sky above
i can see her winged self
drifting among the clouds
miles away from the carnage
the war has wrought
where silence and peace abide
her spirit has flown


Last Thursday, Little Liza was seen happily pushing her stroller on the street when a Russian missile struck killing her instantly along with 23 other people. Her mother, Iryna Dmytrieva, was among the wounded.

The 4-year-old and the other victims could be considered collateral damage in this war that Putin initiated. However, it has become more apparent that the attack was intended to break the will of the Ukrainian people to fight.

I want to believe that there’ll be a reckoning for Putin and his cohorts for their misdeeds. I really want to believe.

In the meantime, little Liza, may you rest in peace.

    Absolutely heart-breaking and gruesome.

    Putin and his cohorts will surely pay some day soon for this carnage.

    RIP divine angel.

      the russians are getting desperate and targeting civilians more and more. they should be convicted of war crimes when the time comes.
