The current conflict between Russia and Ukraine has continued to bring trauma and hardship, which we are sadly witnessing from around the globe.

As we send thoughts and prayers for a resolution to this war, we recognize the national flower of Ukraine, the sunflower, as a symbol of hope and renewal.
