We have the responsibility for helping the children there. Many Syrian children lost their families. They have seen many people killed in front of them. Every day they see human flesh, human blood..dead people As a result, they will be transformed into killers or in some other way, we will generate killers if we don't help these children. We should help them live and bring them their childhood, away from fighting. How we can help them?? Simply.. Tell your friend...

I am writing this post as I sit in a night train, on my way to another province in my country called Jogjakarta. I’m passing a city called Cirebon. So when this post is published, I will probably have arrived at Jogjakarta and perform my task there with my friends. You will read another story of my thoughts, or so you can say, a story from my heart. It is so dark outside. It is about 9:45 p.m and every passenger in this train is busy with his or her own things, and some of th...

It fr...

The Syrian War: a time of despair for the people of Syria that began with a small protest. No one knew that this little protest would result into one of our time’s biggest issues, taking the lives of more than 100,000 people. Political issues have blinded the people of Syria, causing the destruction of the country. Violence has now gone berserk, endangering the lives and future of more than three million Syrian children. The children will not only suffer from physical pain, but t...

Only five steps towards the borderline and now only two are left to look through the barbed wires. His name is "Kid", he is only 10 years old, he is young but old enough to realize that the sky above his head is divided into two; where he stands is emptiness and there across the line is Home. Now they stopped calling him "Kid", since the day they crossed that line he became "Refugee". It's been two years now, he was only eight when he left his home. At first he couldn't understan...
