Writer’s Prompt: Everyone Wants a Home

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

There were these heart-breaking photographs in the April 12 Washington Post (‘A moment of calm’ as cease-fire appears to hold, by Liz Sly and Colum Lynch) that shows four Syrian children holding drawings they made at a school in a refugee camp near the Turkish-Syrian border.  They drawings were of their dream homes, and the homes they drew were really no different from the homes that children in the United States or other nations draw about their homes and family.   They all drew a simple home  surrounded with trees or flowers. And looking at the photographs one had to ask oneself why must this madness in Syria go on, why must these children and their families have to live in refugee camps, dispossessed of their homes in Syria.   Why does the world allow this to happen?   Why is the Syrian government allowed to do these terrible things to its people?   What can be done to stop this?  Why can’t the children have what every child needs, a secure home, with loving parents.   Why in the year 2012 are we still allowing these terrible things to happen to people?

Do any of you have any answers to these questions, or thoughts?
