There’s an incredibly moving image being shared today of a young Syrian boy, sitting alone in an ambulance, covered in dirt and blood, after being rescued from his home, just destroyed in an air strike in the town of Aleppo.

The photo has gone super viral.

His name is Omran Daqneesh, he’s only 5 years old. His parents and three siblings are believed to have survived as well.

Below is the video it comes from.

    Thanks, Obama. But no thanks.

  3. This shows the reflection over terrorism . The movement towards the use of terror often has deep rooted causes and should be avoided.

    Rips your heat out, doesn’t it. And this is what Donald Trump would have our military do since he advocates going after families and civilians to fight ISIS.
