This talented young lady won the Ukraine's version of America's Got Talent. She used the art of sand painting to recount the story of Germany’s invasion of Ukraine in 1941. Life was somewhat ordinary, then it all fell apart. And, by the war’s end, approximately 10 million Ukrainians were left dead. It’s a difficult story to tell but Kseniya Simonova did a beautiful rendition of it in something I had never truly appreciated before, sand painting. Take a look at the video of her winning entry. It's breathtaking.
