The Aug. 19 column “When dogs elicit more concern than Syrians” by Nicholas Kristof really hit home. It brought about some real soul searching.
The day-to-day fighting and losses that the Syrian people face are not something that is in the paper every day and, therefore, it is not something I have thought about much.
To help make it more personal, I cut out the picture of the boy that was in the paper and placed it in my kitchen, where I see it several times a day. The picture serves as a reminder to do the one thing I know I can do to help, and that is to pray for the Syrian people. Pray for a solution that will end the war and pray for peace.
Thank you for putting a face to the pain and suffering happening in Syria.
