Odds and Ends

syria

1. You don’t want to look at the photos. But it is happening. To children. And I refuse to turn my head. This is the only link I want to share with you today. Please help if you can.

    Thank you for sharing the post of Syria and how to help. I volunteer with incoming Syrian refugees, predominantly up until recently Muslim. They are kind, gracious and appreciate everything that this country has to offer.

    I’ve never commented on one of your posts before, but I feel I had to share my thoughts on posting pictures of someone’s dead child. I know why you did it and I think it is important to bring light to these issues, but these are someone’s children. Journalistic recording of atrocities is important and someone needs to bear witness to what is happening. However, journalism and a personal blog are two different things. This is my personal opinion of course, and everyone makes their own choice.

      Oh my goodness, I never thought of that. Although a public photo from a news source, I wouldn’t want that for my child. Thank you so much for pointing this out. Removed.

    Thank you so much Sarah, with all my heart.

    Even a dollar has impact. And if people can’t afford to make donations, just taking the time to amplify the list of organizations doing good work for Syria has meaningful value. We can all do something.
