This is what war looks like. War isn’t generals in a situation room. War isn’t the political leaders sitting at a table or making speeches to the masses to rally for the cause. War isn’t a macho sniper “heroically” gunning down people he deems as dangerous from a safe location.

This is what war does to a country. In this case, Syria. This footage of a 10 year old girl and her brother scrounging for breadcrumbs like pigeons is the reality of what war does to people. It must be said however, that her attitude is INCREDIBLY positive considering the circumstnces and is to be admired. Still, who is it acceptable to that children endure this?

This isn’t being shown to blame or shame anyone but I am asking when are we going to evolve from subjecting people and children to this kind of life all over oil and religion?

Check out this heartbreaking clip and spread the word on the real horrors of war HERE:
