In Reverse

The Syria Campaign

Playgrounds should never be battlegrounds. Change the story.

When i was in second grade 9/11 happened. I am American arab, my first language is Arabic.

On 9/11 I stayed home from school because I was very sick. I was with my family, we were all horrified by what was happening on the TV. We were praying for those people that were in danger. My mother who was Orthodox Christian at the time, lit a St. Mary candle and put it outside of our apartment building.

A couple hours later me and my little sister -who was in kindergarten- were going to see if the candle was still lit. As we walked up the steps from our front door to the main doors, we could hear shouting. Our neighbor was drunk, he was angry. A 45 year old man who lived with his girlfriend. We knew he drank, we always could hear him stomping, and shouting around above us. But on that day I could clearly hear what he was saying. “I’m going to kill them! I’m gonna shoot em!!” I heard these words but I didn’t know what he was talking about, we both brushed it off. Once we finally got outside, we saw that our candle was crushed. Someone had stomped on it, and broken it to pieces. Me and my sister ran back to our apartment to tell our mom, and once we got back in our home we were met by our dad, on the phone with the police department. Our neighbor was screaming from his balcony about how he was going to kill someone, and I finally had realized he was talking about us.

TURKEY, Istanbul : A Syrian refugee man gestures as he begs in the street with a baby lying on his lap in Istanbul on June 19, 2014. Syria’s army on June 15 said it had recaptured the strategic town of Kasab and the only border crossing with Turkey in Latakia province, after it fell to rebels almost three months ago. Nearly half of Syria’s population has fled their homes since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad’s rule erupted in March 2011. More than three million have found refuge abroad,but around six million more are displaced inside Syria, with many living in terrible conditions in camps along the borders. AFP PHOTO/BULENT KILIC

The last thing a 3-year-old Syrian said before he died: “I’m gonna tell God everything”

This picture is haunting and it’s been floating around the internet with the sentence:

The last sentence a 3-year-old Syrian said before he died: “I’m gonna tell God everything”

And that’s equally haunting.  It’s impossible to verify but the picture tells a story about the pain and suffering that exists in Syria right now.  There are many in the media who would like to say this is because president Bashar al-Assad is a ruthless killer.  And that’s half true.  Like other government leaders – he has engaged in war and with that war has come the death of tens of thousands and the displacement of over 1 million Syrians now living in refugee camps.
