That Can’t Be Right.

aleppo

Since the Syrian crisis started in March 2011 almost a half a million people are dead. 13.5 million people are in need of shelter, and 6.1 million people have been internally displaced  from their homes. Isn’t that sad?  When people say ” Why do you care so much? I get that it’s your nationality but aren’t those Aleppo rebels ALL involved with ISIS? ” My/our answer should be this:

The people of Aleppo, just like our forefathers and founders of our country, tried to break away from a brutal regime run by a dictator. They were met with violence, unfathomable suffering, and death.

Unfortunately, instead of concerning ourselves with the refugees or innocent orphans of Syria, our government is worried about what shoes  aren’t being sold at Nordstrom. That sure as hell can’t be right.
