The Ukrainian Singing Tree Mural of Strength and Freedom

During the August 24 Ukraine event, one of the participants shared a photograph of a mural, The Ukrainian Singing Tree of Strength and Freedom, co-designed with students at U. of Texas El Paso.

The mural uses the Ukrainian flag for its background; the national tree, which is a Viburnum; the roots are holding the heart of the world; the national bird – the Nightingale – singing and calling out.

We invite you to use the image as a source of inspiration for the week ahead: what does true strengths and freedom mean to you?
