The place where I live / the place I love the most”
To begin with, I’d like to say that my motherland, the place where I live and love the most, is my amazing country, Ukraine. Generally, I think that our people should really appreciate the place where we live, because the price of our existence cost too much for everybody.
In my opinion, the history of Ukraine is very complicated, because a lot of people didn’t want to recognize the independence of our country for a long time. Moreover, the Ukrainian language was forbidden, and it hurts, especially if you know that it’s very unusual and harmonious one. Fortunately for us, we took this test of life and became stronger morally and spiritually.
To my mind, Ukraine is a country of great opportunities and if you are going to visit it, you will be able feel a bright splash of emotions. There are a lot of things, which will impress you. For instance, our country is famous for its traditions from the ancient times. As I know, our cuisine is rich in the traditional dishes such as borshch with pampushky, varenyky and leaf lard. To add more, our country is famous for the Ukrainian embroidered shirts, which symbolizes good luck, great success and happiness in personal life. No wonder that people believe the ornament of snowball and grape can bring a lot of incredible events to home.
Actually, I am very happy to realize, that from the ancient times, it was believed that the most beautiful girls lived in our country. It’s well known, that the Ukrainian women have natural, but at the same time, incomparable beauty.
Moreover, Ukraine has many beautiful places of interest, which can keep many lovely moments for everybody. Just seeing Kiev, you can enjoy the wonderful excursion around this marvelous city. The sky-blue water of the seas, snow-capped peaks of the Carpathian mountains, the golden wheat fields, green silk steppes, the romance of the ancient Kiev, the legends of a mysterious L’viv, the heroism of an island of Khortytsya, the “wine river” of the Crimea Peninsula… It’s our country and it’s really beautiful.
Unfortunately, our country is experiencing not the best time now; there is a war and a continuous corruption in Ukraine. Generally, a lot of people try to immigrate to another country, because they are looking for a good job, which will give a better profit. In my opinion, it is a big problem for our nation, because we are losing many hard-working people, only because their work is not appreciated.
To my mind, our country has everything for its development, except our clever government. Honestly speaking, people are always afraid of the truth, and it sounds crazy to say that it is a bitter truth of our existence.
And one more problem of our country is the environmental pollution. I think, that this question is very popular nowadays and their so pities, that we don t understand that we do harm to ourselves. I can’t realize, why we pay such a high price for achieving our country’s prosperity, why we destroy everything with our own hands. So what shall we do?
It seems firstly, we should plant a lot of trees near the roads, because trees absorb harmful substances, which get out from transport.
Secondly, we can create special roads for people, who ride a bicycle, like in other European countries.
But all in all, I am proud that I was born in Ukraine, because I like the beauty of our nature, marvelous cities and the lovely atmosphere that is in the air. I am sure that my generation will never give up and be able to reach a new level of our history.
And finally, we should remember, “Our future depends only on us” because our motherland is the place we live and the place we love the most.
