  2. To paraphrase Gilda Meir, may the day come when we love our children more than we hate each other. I’m beyond sickened, heartbroken, and scared out of my mind. Where to look for peace?

  6. EXTREMELY SAD! My prayers for all the people in Syria. May God give them strength to heal. To be good. If a bullet were to hit an innocent person today, I pray that it misses it’s target. If weapons are being delivered to some place, I really pray that somehow the shipment gets damaged. If such gas attacks are being planned ever again, I pray that the device malfunctions and affects the people who are planning such attack. I pray that no parent EVER have to see their kids suffer like this.

  7. Wish there were an ‘acknowledge’ button, because it’s damned hard to hit ‘like.’ Images like these leave me speechless. Has it really come to this? I feel heartsick.

  9. I’m grateful that there is oxygen to treat them. Elsewhere in the word there is nothing … and no hope.
    May we come together and make our voices heard for peace and healing throughout the word and within ourselves.

    It’s shameful the way the free world has abandoned the Syrian people.

  12. This…this is where our attention is required. Not on the muscle-flexing of world leaders. Not on the furor over replacing one conservative justice with another. Not on the Twitter antics, or the Pepsi nonsense. Not on broken promises, or health care, or political espionage.

    Just this.

  15. Go or no-go? How can we stand by? How can we get involved without making things worse? This is what we should be debating. Now. This moment.

  16. Dear David

    This photo has shocked me and prevented me from giving a like – I like that you shared it, because it is important that the world gives attention to it. Therefore, allow me to write this comment to you instead of giving a like – you surely understand it 🙂

    May God open His grace to the whole world that understanding and respect is coming among the people and peoples.

    All the best my friend 🙂

  20. I owned my own restaurant back in the late 1980’s. We had a Syrian cook, Reem, who predicted all of this way back then. She was a university student trying to get her degree and get her family out of Syria. She said Bashir was trouble and she wasn’t kidding.

    This breaks my heart. I can’t even look at the photos without balling my eyes out.

    It’s not much, but I made a t-shirt as a response to all the the hatred happening now. I want to help these people but I don’t know what else to do. https://www.redbubble.com/people/emmaleedesigns/works/23827581-wwjd-heart-on-black?asc=u&p=classic-tee&ref=artist_shop_grid
