People tell me how courageous it was of me to take this trip, but in reality it was the most natural thing I have ever done. What costs you way more, what destroys you, is not the fight, but doing nothing, not changing your life, living it the way somebody else wants you to live, fulfilling their dreams -- not yours.
Elena shares her experience
In my Russian language memoir Talking to the Moon I recall meeting Meg, escaping to her in Kyiv and our run for our lives and freedom to the Pacific coast of Canada.
In my latest book Parallel reality entangles with a parallel universe in which Meg and I never met.
Would I do it again? In a heartbeat! Do I have any regrets? Not one. Eleven years ago, at the train station in Kyiv, I watched an amazing young woman take back her life! She changed the universe that day. By running with her, by holding on tight and never giving up, I took back my own life. Nothing will ever be the same again.
