I know that people want to read light happy things, but every so often I find a blog that tears at my heart and screams for me to pass along the message. This post says to me, think of the children everywhere. In Syria, absolutely, but also in every other repressive and war torn society that we prefer not to consider.

We are not talking about it. It’s a shadow. Just far and away. We are not talking about it.
We are not talking about the children of Syria.
In February a report was presented to the U.N. Security Council that verifies the terror suffered by Syria’s children during three years of an insane conflict. But they don’t care. No action.
Children have been sexually abused. Raped. Executed. Children have been used as human shield. Their relatives have been tortured before them.
More than 10,000 have been killed. We are silent. They don’t exist. The children of Syria are far and away. Shadows and ashes that we ignore.
They are the true children of a lesser God.
