“Now I lay in my grave at age 21
Long before you were born
Before I bore a son
What good did it do?
Well hopefully for you
A world without war
A life full of color.”
The War Was in Color, Carbon Leaf
Our hearts ache for our Ukrainian friends. In SL, we all probably know someone directly impacted by the horrors of the Russian-Ukrainian war. We feel helpless; they might feel hopeless. How do we help?
This newest couples pose from Something New struck me as being entirely appropriate for these aching times. “Why Her?” is available for L100 at the Pose Event running until April 19th.
On the same day I picked up the pose, No.Match released their recent charity hairstyle, No_War. The hair is beautiful, and 100% of the proceeds go to Ukrainian Aid efforts. I not only bought my customary blonde pack for 50L, but then went on and bought the fatpack (of colors I will never wear) for 200L. The braids can be worn with or without the “Dandelion” add-on of blue and yellow ribbons and flowers.
We feel so helpless in real life to help our Ukrainian friends. We can’t go help; we can’t provide a warm bed or a comforting hug. But, what we CAN do is remember them daily. Honor them daily. Wear their colors of blue and yellow. Fly their flag.
Innocent people are dying, and even if we can only stand up virtually, let’s stand together for peace. Create scenes like this one to remind us that this war, like all wars, is in color.
