All I know about Syria right now is what I read in the papers and see on the news, but it seems clear there’s atrocity going on. I don’t know who’s to blame. The government says the rebels are, and the rebels say the same of the government.
Regardless, people are being slaughtered every day.
Now, I wonder what the world is going to do. I wonder what the US is going to do?
There’s been countless images of piles of bodies for months now, and at least from a layman’s point of view, it seems everyone including the US is just watching. Perhaps sending advisors.
I wonder how long it will take for the world to get tired of piles of bodies? It makes me think about wars, and rumors of wars.
Maybe the end is drawing near. I don’t know.
I do know that every time I see a dead child with a bullet hole in his/her face it makes me want to do something.
Right now all I can do is pray.
Pray for a resolution to the violence.
Pray for wisdom for my country’s leadership, and the leadership of other countries contemplating assistance to Syria in some capacity.
Pray for peace in a place that seldom sees it.
Pray for understanding on my own part. I just don’t understand this little regard for human life.
All I know is something has to happen, and quickly. This is not a war-this is wanton murder.
