Being a Humanitarian


Look at these photographs. What do you see?

A threat to national security, or

A human being in need?

A future jihadist, or

A future refugee?

Collateral damage, or

A victim of political and religious extremism?

Another image I'll forget in two minutes, or

A human being that is living through misery I could never imagine?

Would you want your child to experience this hell? Neither did their parents.

This is not about being a Muslim, a nationalist or a rebel. It’s not about being Syrian, Russian, Iranian, Turkish or American. It’s not about being Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal.

This is about being a humanitarian.
