Suddenly, the building just fell on us
- Total death count in Syria : 450,000
- Death of children : 50,000
- Syrian child who need help : Over 2,000,000
There are 100,000 children trapped in eastern Aleppo. They account for half of all casualties. This is a generation born into war. Many children are now orphaned and left to survive alone. Over 2 million Syrian children are in desperate need of help, as starvation becomes a weapon of war. (UN, Jan 2016) Syrian children are starving and freezing in the cold. They are desperate for any small amount of food and warmth.
Q “How long have you been without food?” A “Seven days”
Q “How long has Hana (7-month-old) been without milk?”
A “A month. Every 10 days I give her some water and salt.”
Suddenly, the building just fell on us. Oh my god, all my children are gone! I was heartbroken looking at her facial expression. I think I can do something. There must be something. I don’t care if I’m complacent. It would be better to try a little more. I hope we can do something to stop the expected massacres. We can’t just sit still.
Me : “What’s your problem?”
A child : “I want to ask you for something but I feel ashamed.”
Me : “Go a head, say it”
A child : “Uncle, we haven’t eaten for the past 3 days and I just wanted to ask you if you can give me some food to give my little brothers… Only if you can.”
Have you ever killed anyone?
This video starts with this question, “Do you remember the first time you killed someone?” They answered, “we played war and stuff like that but you know, it’s never real.”, “You always learned that when someone died, it was, it was something that was detrimental.” and “I know it’s not right, it’s not right to do this, but I have to. If I focus about all this stuff, in one minute if I focus, I lose my mind. but I never focus about this stuff.” This is really serious. They were continuing to rationalize themselves. Because they are so afraid of facing the death. They murmured ‘They’re not real people, they’re just targets.’ He felt, “If there’s a hell, that’s probably what it smells like there. It penetrates you and it just won’t go away for a long time. It’s horrible.”
A veteran : I just, I felt sorry for them, but, no personal guilt, no.
I felt very compassionate and I was thinking about, you know his girlfriend, his family, whatever. Both have families and children probably and, you know.

That is why we need to urge all of our presidents. We need to urge them for the world to become peaceful sooner. I’m not saying something wrong. Am I?
