32. Why The Orange Ribbon
What do you all think of this?... edit at will! Please help with the grammar especially!

In 2002 Victor Yushchenkos liberal movement "Our Ukraine" adopted the color orange to symbolize their democratic ideals. Orange was later chosen as the symbolic color of his presidential campaign. Victor Yushchenko was later poisoned just before his country's election.

During Ukraine's presidential elections on November 21st 2004 there was widespread fraud and disenfranchisement. The people of Ukraine rose up in a sea of orange and began a campaign of civil disobedience, in order to force a re-vote. Media the world over took an incredible interest in the process, and their was little doubt that most of the world supported the re-vote.

On December 26th Ukraine's people cast their ballots once again and elected Victor Yushchenko and his liberal platform to the office of President. Victor Yushchenko has since faced delays and challenges from his opponent over this second election. We believe that Mr. Yushchenko is indeed the lawful President of Ukraine. applauds the incredible will and determination of President Victor Yushcenko and his supporters. We take inspiration from them and stand in utmost admiration of their accomplishments. We use the color orange in honor and with respect to their struggle.
