Skulls on Podbrdo!
Valentina, 29, comes from the Ukraine. Upon seeing her, you'd believe her to be a "normal," young girl. However! Her story is far from ordinary! From an atheist background and marked by the hardcore communism of those regions, she grew up in material poverty and spiritual emptiness. One day, she won a "green card," a sort of American-style lottery, and was given the opportunity to go and live in the United States! She was only 18 years old, and worked as a hairdresser in the Ukraine. So considering the horrible conditions of her life, she left. In the beginning, it was very hard - she didn't speak a word of English. Her work did not fill up her life, and a terrible feeling of emptiness overcame her. She asked herself the questions that the Queen of Peace asked all of us on July 2nd: "Stop for a moment and reflect on yourselves and on the transience of this your earthly life. Then reflect on eternity and the eternal beatitude. What do you want? Which way do you want to set out on?"
