I just finished reading "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston... 😱 After reading this book, I understand why the situation in West Africa right now is so incredibly, extremely urgent! Ebola is a frightening evil! Here are some reviews on the book (a non-fiction thriller): "The first chapter of The Hot Zone is one of the most horrifying things I've read in my whole life--and then it gets worse. That's what I keep marveling over: it keeps getting worse. What a remarkable piece of work." --Stephen King "A tour de force ... Preston uses the power of simple narrative to drive deep his story's urgent truths." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

She looks for a coin. He waits. Her shadow merges with that of the tree, with his, as a transaction of compassion leaves her richer and an action of humiliation, as interpreted by some, on the part of the pauper banker, becomes an opportunity for mercy to be shown, and for a heavenly deposit to be made.

The Battle of the Dnieper, one of the most lethal battles in world history. "The Lower Dnieper Offensive took place in 1943 during the Second World War. It was one of the largest operations in the Second World War, involving almost 4,000,000 troops on both sides and stretching on a 1,400 kilometres (870 mi) long front. During its four-month duration, the eastern bank of the Dnieper was recovered from German forces by five of the Red Army's Fronts, which conducted several assault river crossings to establish several bridgeheads on the western bank. Subsequently, Kiev was liberated in a separate offensive.

One of the costliest operations of the war, the casualties of the Chernigov-Poltava Strategic Offensive are estimated at being from 1,700,000 to 2,700,000 on both sides." "The Battle of Dnieper was another defeat for the Wehrmacht that required it to restabilize the front further West. The Red Army, which Hitler hoped to contain at the Dnieper, forced the Wehrmacht's defences. Kiev was recaptured and German troops lacked the forces to annihilate Soviet troops on the Lower Dnieper bridgeheads. The west bank was still in German hands for the most part, but both sides knew that it would not last for long.

Additionally, the Battle of Dnieper demonstrated the strength of the Soviet partisan movement. The "rail war" operation staged during September and October 1943 struck German logistics very hard, creating heavy supply issues." πŸ‘‰en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Dnieper

"He shall not be afraid of evil tidings." β€” Psalms 112:7
Christian, you ought not to dread the arrival of evil tidings; because if you are distressed by them, what do you more than other men? Other men have not your God to fly to; they have never proved his faithfulness as you have done, and it is no wonder if they are bowed down with alarm and cowed with fear: but you profess to be of another spirit; you have been begotten again unto a lively hope, and your heart lives in heaven and not on earthly things; now, if you are seen to be distracted as other men, what is the value of that grace which you profess to have received? Where is the dignity of that new nature which you claim to possess?

Again, if you should be filled with alarm, as others are, you would, doubtless, be led into the sins so common to others under trying circumstances. The ungodly, when they are overtaken by evil tidings, rebel against God; they murmur, and think that God deals hardly with them. Will you fall into that same sin? Will you provoke the Lord as they do?

Moreover, unconverted men often run to wrong means in order to escape from difficulties, and you will be sure to do the same if your mind yields to the present pressure. Trust in the Lord, and wait patiently for him. Your wisest course is to do as Moses did at the Red Sea, "Stand still and see the salvation of God." For if you give way to fear when you hear of evil tidings, you will be unable to meet the trouble with that calm composure which nerves for duty, and sustains under adversity. How can you glorify God if you play the coward? Saints have often sung God's high praises in the fires, but will your doubting and desponding, as if you had none to help you, magnify the Most High? Then take courage, and relying in sure confidence upon the faithfulness of your covenant God, "let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Charles Spurgeon (died 1892 - British Baptist preacher) - Morning Devotion for September 15th

Sir Winston Churchill to Joseph Stalin: β€œ...Have the stresses of war been as bad to you personally as carrying through the policy of Collective Farms?” Stalin: β€œ - Oh no, The Collective Farm policy was a terrible struggle... Ten million (he said holding up his hands). It was fearful. Four years it lasted. It was absolutely necessary.” β€œUkrainians are an ethos, with their profound religiosity, individualism, tradition of private property, and devotion to their plots of land, were not suited to the construction of communism, and this fact was noted by the high-ranking Soviet officials.” V. Ovsiienko (human rights activist in Kharkiv). (My photo of #Kyiv memorial to Holodomor victims. The Holodomor - forced famines of the 20th century - claimed around 10 000 000 Ukrainian lives, mostly in 1932-33).)

What is it about the study of philosophy that tends to make brilliant minds stupid when it comes down to what are known as actual cases? Consider Martin Heidegger, Bertrand Russell, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, the four great names in twentieth-century philosophy: the first was a Nazi, the second died certain that America was responsible for all the world’s evil, the third was a Stalinist long after any justification for being so could be adduced, and the fourth lived on the borders of madness most of his life. Contemplation of the lives of philosophers is enough to drive one to the study of sociology.

Today, we will be visiting via @electronicsocialart the Memorial complex of the National Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War (of 1941-1945). I took this photo in the memorial alley of the complex based in #Kyiv, #Ukraine. "The sculptures in the alley depict the courageous defence of the Soviet border from the 1941 German invasion, terrors of the Nazi occupation, partisan struggle, devoted work on the home front, and the 1943 Battle of the Dnieper." Source:Wikipedia. The Soviet Union suffered 26.6 million deaths in the war. This is the current official Russian government figure for total losses. It is estimated that around 7 million Ukrainians were killed during WWII (add this to other figures such as 10 million deaths from the forced famines that were instituted in part to squelch Ukrainian nationalism by the Soviet regime). Our ESAF association launched the #Normandy70years since #DDay communication (such as for #applifam14sep last year) in preparation for our 8th #ESAF_expo that kicked off on November 25th, 2013, in Louisiana, USA. The 10th #ESAF_expo was this year's "#TheFightForFreedom - From Normandy to Ukraine" that has been viewable at the Kress Gallery, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, since March 2014. As the 10th expo finishes this week, we are launching our 11th #ESAF_expo communication, that will focus on the Eastern European geopolitical situation, commemorating 20th century events as experienced here, and the current crisis in Ukraine.

For #applifam14sep, today's @applifam @electronicsocialart activity, we are learning about Ukrainian traditional art. Here is a selection of "pysanky" that I photographed in #Kyiv. "A pysanka (Ukrainian: писанка, plural: pysanky) is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax." Info from Wikipedia...

Repost from πŸ‘‰@giuseppemauriello74: 🎨🎨🎨 My β€œzoom on” and β€œwatercolor painting” of St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery. β€œIt is a functioning monastery in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The monastery is located on the right bank of the Dnieper River on the edge of a bluff northeast of the Saint Sophia Cathedral. The site is located in the historic administrative Uppertown and overlooks the city's historical commercial and merchant quarter, the Podil neighbourhood.
Originally built in the Middle Ages by Sviatopolk II Iziaslavych, the monastery comprises the Cathedral itself, the Refectory of St. John the Divine, built in 1713, the Economic Gates, constructed in 1760 and the monastery's bell tower, which was added circa 1716–1719. The exterior of the structure was rebuilt in the Ukrainian Baroque style in the 18th century while the interior remained in its original Byzantine style. The original cathedral was demolished by the Soviet authorities in the 1930s, but was reconstructed and opened in 1999 following Ukrainian independence in 1991...” > This is an excerpt from Wikipedia. Full information about history, architecture and other interesting sources are here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Michael%27s_Golden-Domed_Monastery .
