Local support for the Ukrainian election

By Aussiegirl

In a show of solidarity and support for democracy in Ukraine, Orthodox and Ukrainian Catholic churches based in Washington, D. C. hosted 18 busloads of Ukrainians living in the United States yesterday morning who had come to the nation's capital to cast their ballots in the latest election.

Members of the parishes of the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Andrews, the Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Holy Trinity, and the Ukrainian Catholic National Shrine of the Holy family combined forces to feed a breakfast of scrambled eggs, hash browns, sweet rolls, coffee and other tasty treats to hundreds of people who had traveled all night to have their chance to participate in the voting.

Spirits were high and it was exciting to be able to have a small part in the democratic revolution taking place in my parents' homeland.
