I'm just so relieved that only a handful died. It could've been so much worse+it still may get there with all the damn bombing. He's an amazing human being+man.

This bothers me more than all other stories out of Syria. THIS is what Trump supports.

Break, break my heart! War is an evil that we need to end for once and all. Someday, I am hopeful, will be born the first generation that will never taste of war except in history books and movies.

Sad that any animals perished, even if it was just two cats and the dog. That is two cats and one dog too many.

Bless this man and his helpers so that he can save as many animals as possible. War is hard on everything, the people, animals, the ground itself might not be able to sustain crops again, not to mention lovely cities that use to hold the scents and sounds of generations.

Animals are always the most vulnerable members of a society. Alaa deserves all our prayers and any money we can send. Bless him and the animals.
