Horrific accounts are emerging from a chemical attack on the outskirts of Damascus (Syria) which if true would mark one of the worst chemical weapon assaults since Saddam Hussein's assault in 1983.

    Omid! I had to force myself to watch this and my heart is broken. What is the answer? The World is in chaos!

  • Donna Gleason

    I am so saddened by the atrocities people can commit on one another…

    Where is God/Allah?

  • dear Donna, I think the real question to ask is: where are we? where do we stand, and what are we doing?

  • Donna Gleason

    Omid, I agree whole heatedly, but it seems “we” are helpless… We can’t trust anyone in charge! I can make a difference on a local level, and I am… But the “dreads” we had 10 years ago are here! We sit back and watch the world go by, until its in our backyard. Those poor broken bodies were lved as much as my own children, yet no one could protect them… Where is the answer; the change we can make?

    Allah have mercy this is terrible… Those poor kids.
    One of this videos showed CPR attempts on a small boy. Has info about basic medical techniques (CPR, heimlick, proper cleaning of cuts, treatment of burns, etc) been circulated by any nonprofits in Syria?

  • Donna Gleason

    Sadly, CPR will not help these innocent victims. Nothing will.
