“A month has been passed from the death of a marvelous person, a sister, a friend; One of those always positive persons, also in the sickness, that has been taken away from us. I’m talking on my, our President, Aglaia Kozlovska (just Alina for friends). A woman born and lived for her neighbor. Aglaia is that wonderful person who has handled the huge exodus of people, in particular of children, running away from Chernobyl disaster. Someone, and not by chance, used to call her “ the Mother Teresa of Calcutta from the Est”. Oh… She has saved lives… really many lives. Without askining nothing for her. She was a shy and reserved person, but in the same time so addictive.
I owe her so much, specially for where am I now. For sure She was an enlightened person. Who miss to me as to hundreds of people. I would have so much to write on her, really. I promised to me doing that because I want to give to her the proper memory of a woman and wonderful mother, who has embraced with her love many lonely people. Now is the time for crying. I feel a deep haze of loneliness grow around me and a general overwhelming feeling of anger for not been able to help her more. In the last week of September, at the UN New York Headquarters, while a working session of Civil Society was going on, It was observed a minute of silence to remember Aglaia, and what she did for many people.
Goodbye my beloved sister, i wanted to remember you like this, happy (as you always have been)at the exit of Kiev’s ecology minister, after concluding yet another agreement, in favor of the protection of the rural ucrainian families, slaughtered by the improper pesticide use.
Have a good journey Alina!
And if a Beyond exists, enlighten from there our path, give us the force to carry on your battles. I’ve been living so long for that, and so long I’ll live for do that.”
