Take a stand with us!

Another day, another tank rolling into another country.  My family went through something eerily similar in the 1990s when Yugoslavia fell apart and Bosnia was brutally attacked by the neighboring Serbia and war criminal Slobodan Milosevic and crew – suffering over 200,000 casualties, one million refugees, and a destroyed country.  Under similar pretenses now facing Kiyv, Sarajevo was under the longest siege in modern times, nearly four years of snipers, shelling, and murdering children.  This cannot happen again!
