Today seems to be mostly about the children

Little boy after his house in Aleppo was bombed:

I can’t help but wonder what hope there is for the children, when they’re involved before thy’re even old enough to walk, or speak…

There is something truly beautiful, and truly heartbreaking, about this picture:

And for this last one, it’s the way the child is making the sign for peace…

And finally a link, which I’m not going to upload.  It’s a 30 second video of a child running away, and the moment he’s shot by a sniper.

    Most of the rest I can just about handle – that first photo however just makes me very very angry!
    I know kids get killed in war – same as every other poor bastard, but it’s the complete lack of understanding and and utter inability to comprehend, never mind take sides, just makes it wrong.
