For Syrian Children, a Home Is Something They Have to Leave

I was about to write a post today regarding the SF market but decided to write something different. I don’t know about you but all of this news about the Syrian refugees is very sad and hard to get out of my mind. It’s especially hard to see photos of frightened children walking along or being carried by their parents. I am in the home business and these people are being brutally chased from their homes. If they don’t leave, they could lose their lives. Home has a lot of meaning for people – it’s a place of sanctuary, a place to create memories, and a place to share food with family and friends among other things. I have felt at a loss about how I can help out. Recently, I went to see a National Theatre live broadcast of “Hamlet,” starring Benedict Cumberbatch. At the end of the play, he asked people to donate to the UK version of Save the Children to help the Syrian refugees. The US version is: http://www.savethechildren.org/site/c.8rKLIXMGIpI4E/b.7998857/k.D075/Syria.htm I just did. I thought I’d pass this on.
