I found this article about the poem “We Lived Happily During the War” by Ilya Kandinsky, which touches on Ukraine-related themes. The poem was very thought-provoking, and it was so interesting to read about Kandisky’s thoughts on the poem, so I would recommend it! I think it’s really important to stay informed about the Ukraine conflict, be empathetic for Ukrainians, and take action. It's so special that poetry/art plays a role in sparking thoughts and actions, and this was an example.
Ilya Kaminsky's poem has been shared across social media during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Kaminsky, who grew up in Odessa before his family came to the United States, addresses his poem, what friends and family in Ukraine have told him, and what he wants the world to know.
