Today is the 96th anniversary of Soviet Russia, and I am grateful to the USSR for all the gifts it bestowed on me: free and excellent education, free healthcare, affordable and accessible additional education and the feeling of security – the latter, by the way, cannot be bought for any money. And to my Mom, who sent me greetings in the morning reminding me exactly how many years ago the Revolution actually happened.
