The Children of Syria: A Big Reason to Care About the Syrian Civil War

Very rarely do I venture down the road of politics, but I couldn’t pass up this story. After accidentally finding this video of children growing up in the middle of the Syrian civil war, I couldn’t ignore it. This may be the most powerful story I’ve written with Hypervocal.

This is just a small excerpt from the article:

After only a whisper of concern in the State of the Union, it seems that American leaders will continue to tip-toe around the issue of assisting Syrian rebel forces. President Obama said, “We will keep the pressure on a Syrian regime that has murdered its own people, and support opposition leaders that respect the rights of every Syrian,” but he offered no solution.
