Dear Syria

Amine Khoury, my great friend, is a man with a huge brain and an even bigger heart. I was sitting in his office at Eastwood schools in Beirut when he turned to me with tears flowing down his face, he said you must see this, and handed me an essay written by a young child at the school. One forced by circumstance to be wise well beyond her years. Her story resonated strongly with me and I asked to meet her. Fifteen seconds into our conversation I knew I needed to share her story with as many people as possible. Her voice is quiet but strong, her words measured but powerful. She had to leave her home, and her life there, behind. For a reason she can't understand. It's time for all of us to pay attention, and to help.
