I am afraid of going to EuroMaidan.

I am afraid of going to Maidan, as it is cold and frosty there. I’ll have to give birth to children. But the more I am afraid that my children would live in reservation, at the best.

I am afraid of going to Maidan, because I don’t meet deadlines for handing in my diploma work. Even more I am afraid that the ministry of education trade would sell a piece of plastic proudly called a “diploma” not only to me, but also to my children.

I am afraid of going to Maidan, as it seems to me that nothing depends on me. But the more I am afraid that somewhen my children would ask me what I did in December 2013.

I am afraid of going to Maidan, because “Berkut” might beat me, or they would pin a crime on me. But the more I am afraid that someone else would get it and it would be quite hard to pull him or her out.

I am afraid of going to Maidan, as I’ll get disappointed at politicians again. Even more I am afraid that I would have to live with such President in the future.

I am afraid of going to Maidan, because these special people who are there will become ordinary later. Even more I am afraid that I couldn’t be the same as them even for a few hours.

I am afraid of going to Maidan. But I am afraid of the voice of my conscience even more.

I am afraid of going to Maidan. But it is more awful to sit at home.

I’ll go to Maidan to be afraid there, because it is easier to be afraid together.
