St. Patrick’s Day message for Ukraine
17 March 2022
My great Irish artist and friend Paul Brady sent me this message just posted by the Government of Ireland to mark this St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a profoundly moving video montage honoring the people of Ukraine set to Paul’s iconic song, “The Island,” which was written years ago when Ireland was in the height of its own ‘troubles.’ In it he references the victims of senseless and brutal wars everywhere.
And today, in solidarity with the people of Ukraine facing the staggering brutality and suffering caused by Putin’s invasion, the Irish people are sending this beautiful and heartfelt message.
Please share if you are also so moved, and let’s continue to do whatever we can to work for peace and lend our support to the millions forced from their lives and homes.
My heart is breaking for the needless suffering of the victims of war everywhere.
