I donated about 35 dollars this evening to the Red Cross’ efforts to save children and everybody else in Syria. I just couldn’t stand reading about it in the news anymore.
Aleppo is falling – even more than it has fallen before, and in so many dark ways.
Thousands of innocent people trapped in there, like a cage of hell. Men, women, children…
“Only the children” as Toto sings:
Why must the ones just beginning
Stand with their backs to the wall
So did it help? Probably. In a very small way.
I shared it on Facebook and tried to get people up to this one of many collections.
I even wrote RC and made some suggestions to improve their social sharing options on the donation page.
And tomorrow it continues. In Syria. And many other places.
What do I tell my son when he gets old enough to understand:
About why it happens and what you can do to stop it – when you can’t really understand the first or answer the second?
Perhaps I tell him that all that matters is that you try. That you do something.
