When A Child Doesn\’t Cry

\”Within minutes of being posted by witnesses and journalists, a photograph and a video of Omran began rocketing around the world on social media. Unwittingly, Omran — like Alan Kurdi, the Syrian toddler who drowned last September and whose body washed up on a Turkish beach — is bringing new attention to the thousands upon thousands of children killed and injured during five years of war and the inability or unwillingness of global powers to stop the carnage.\” ~ New York Times

…When a Child Doesn\’t Cry.

That is a devastating statement.

Here is Omran, a young child who was playing.  Then the bombs came. Suddenly he is alone; he is covered in soot and blood.

His childhood just died.

Children like this don\’t cry. The reason why is that no one responds.   They don\’t have a loving parent or guardian.

Perhaps they were killed.
They might be missing.
We just don\’t know. 

If you don\’t have someone to take care of you, why cry?


We have to stop this. Young children like Omran deserve to be loved, responded to, safe. They deserve to play. They deserve to grow up and to have a childhood.
