BALTIMORE (WJZ) — People from the Baltimore area took part in a global day of action for peace in Ukraine on Sunday.
A group of people gathered in Patterson Park opposite St. Michael’s Ukrainian Catholic Church to show their solidarity with the people of Ukraine and Russia fighting against Vladimir Putin’s invasion.

“It was so heartfelt. It brought tears to your eyes. Folks, we all come from different countries, different races, different religions – but there is a common denominator that everyone embraces. That’s called freedom,” said Church member John Wojtowycz.
Many people brought homemade signs to hold up, while some motorists honked their horns as they passed.
Some of the signs said things like “Russian Troops Are Going Home”, “Stop This War” and “Russia: Get Out of Ukraine”.

This is just one piece of the puzzle that paints a picture of a global day of action for peace in Ukraine.
This international effort requires several actions, including the immediate withdrawal of all Russian troops.
“Peace must begin with me and with you,” Church member Grace Byerly said. “We can’t change the whole world, but we can change the way we react.”
