We Stand With Ukraine – A Letter From Our CEO
March 2, 2022
This week, we want to honor the bravery of the citizens of Ukraine. It is with great sadness and anger that we witness from afar their world being turned upside down in just a few days. Different than the pandemic, this tragedy is a choice by people to inflict suffering and death on innocent people.
Our c. myers family has many ties to Ukraine and its people including spouses, parents, grandparents, friends, and teammates. This deep connection started almost two decades ago when I had the privilege of living in Ukraine while serving in the Peace Corps, where I met my wife, Olya. Ukraine is a special place, and Ukrainians are special people. If you have never experienced sitting at a Ukrainian table for a meal, walking the streets of Kyiv, taking in the beauty of the land – I can assure you, it’s memorable.
To hear stories of these people literally fighting for their lives and freedom is, at the same time, heartbreaking and inspiring. As uncertain as the future is, if there is one thing I’ve learned, it is to never underestimate the heart and determination of Ukrainians.
The people of Ukraine are uniting for their cause – to be free. We at c. myers stand united and active in their cause. We would encourage you to look for opportunities to support them – both with your voice and contributions.
