Orange Revolution--One of the Most Peaceful in a Decade

A Listmania! list by Yaroslava Benko "Mandrivnyk" (Arlington Heights, IL - USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Experience the emotions of the 40,000 university students who marched in support of their candidate, Viktor Yushchenko. Experience the angst of over one million Ukrainian citizens who took to the streets in support of their candidate, Viktor Yushchenko. Experience the lives of university students and others who set up their tent city within Kyiv. Experience the determination of the multitudes of citizens who rearranged their personal lives and arrived in Kyiv from throughout Ukraine with their local flags announcing their home cities (Lviv, Poltava, etc.). Experience the support from citizens from around the world (Zimbabwe and Sierra Leone, among others). Experience the exhaustion of the residents of the tent city. Experience the never-ending spirit of camaraderie and support at the nightly musical pep rallies. Experience the warmth of the impromptu pot fires set up to warm chilled hands. Experience the chants of the Ukrainian citizens: "hello; good evening" (when local police reinforcements came); "police are with the people" (as they placed flowers on police shields); "you're our guys" (as police entered buses and waved to the citizens); "the court is with the people," "Yushchenko," "Tak," "Together we are many! We cannot be defeated!" (which was to become the theme song of the Orange Revolution). Experience never-ending encouragement, even as you see the word TAK! (Yes!) scooped out of snow on a snow-ladened park bench. Experience the majesty of Kyiv as snow-capped firs and buildings and people add local color to God's landscaped artistry. Experience the music. Experience the Orange Revolution... Just as a popular film may have a number of versions with different casts, but only one receives many academy awards, so, too, with the various documentaries on the Orange Revolution. Although there are a number of DVDs which chronicle the events leading up to the Orange Revolution, be careful which you choose to view; the Listmania list below may provide some guidance."
