Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. This video is in tribute and to raise awareness about Syria, but it could be about so many issues. For those of us who truly believe that “It Takes a Village,” it matters.

Think about all the things that have happened in your life — good and bad — in the last two and some years. Now imagine you had happened to be in a geographic location that was, quite literally, a war zone. I wrote about one teenager in Syria who lost his life over two years ago. Now it’s been three years on. And it’s still going on. Just because it isn’t happening to you, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

How you can help through Save the Children. I’ve long been a supporter of Save the Children; they do good work.


Hooking up with yeah write’s moonshine grid because I’m cool like that.

    No child should have to live in that type of environment. It’s so heart-breaking.

    Thanks for writing such a blog. This all is because of us. Our governments are doing this and our soldiers are doing this. Many of many people are trying to reach Syria to help them out. Thanks for share, all the best!

  3. Thank you for this post…It’s been strange to watch Syria implode from my dual vantage of the UAE & the US. There is more than enough heart-break in the world to go around, alas, but the scope of what is happening in Syria seems almost beyond belief. And it keeps going and going and going. It’s like the entire world is standing by watching as an entire country, rich in culture and history and beauty, becomes a sinkhole in the earth…it’s almost unreal. Except that it’s real.

    I just saw this video yesterday. Very well done. I think this video could be applied to a number of different conflicts going on around the world. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I have friends who fled from Syria, & the psychological toll can be just as devastating as the physical one. I appreciate you sharing this video.
