CYM's Haslo for 2010:
Haslo 2010: "As long as you live – dream and search!"
This year’s haslo is an adaptation of words in a poem Hey new Columbuses and Magellans (15.10.1962) written by Vasyl Symonenko. In this poem Symonenko calls us to purpose to search out our dreams, to uncover new knowledge, new experiences and learn more about ourselves in the context of our nation and learn more about Ukraine.
Symonenko ends his poem with a promise
In the ocean of our native people
Uncover spiritual islands
Ukraine! As long as I live
I will keep discovering you
And then finally he calls us to dream and not be apathetic
Dream and search as long as you live
Sizzle apathy in the fire!
Each year we have a new haslo that is a call to action, a call to purpose, or a call to further goal setting and in the end to realizing that goal. A haslo could also give us a direction for self improvement. This year’s haslo As long as you live – dream and search can be understood in the context of learning and gaining knowledge, self improvement or in the context of creativity – dream to create. This year’s haslo can also be understood in terms of CYM’s values and principles which are found in the Pravyl’nyk Yunatstva.
Each of us needs to dream, to have hope, to have something for which to strive. If we don’t dream and don’t search for our place in the world – there is no progress.
