“This is Omran. He’s alive. We wanted you to know.”

We see so much war on television news, in movies, on tv shows. In a way we’ve become desensitized to the destruction, almost to the point where we don’t even see what is happening in the world around us. I’m not sharing this video because of the host crying, which the Mediaite’s story was about, I’m sharing this video because it brought tears to my eyes.

How can we deny these innocent children entry into our country. A safe country. Where bombs will not blow them up. They don’t plan to do us harm.

Omran wasn’t the only child they brought into that ambulance, there were other children… But there aren’t even doctors for these children to be taken to. Only 15 doctors left in the country.

How can we continue to turn a blind eye to this? How can anyone in our country even think about electing a President that would turn away from this tragedy that happens day after day after day.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
