Maidan, Kyiv, Ukraine. February 2014. © Mark Estabrook. All rights reserved. Do not republish in any media, including blogs, without express written permission.

The EuroMaidan protesters saved my life after my being hit by two grenades. But more importantly, they saved my soul and belief in mankind. I have never met more passionate believers in freedom in all of my life. I have served in the U.S. Air Force as an aircraft commander. I am proud of my service but nothing compares to what I experienced in Kyiv. As I was running backwards taking photos of a massacre, EuroMaidan protesters protected me in order to make sure my photos left Maidan. I am still sorting that out as I will for the rest of my life.

Few of us on Flickr fully comprehend the fight of the Ukrainians against Russia, Putin and the oligarchs. I thank all of you for every piece of encouragement I receive from you.
