  1. August 28th I wrote about the help Syrian kids need and how we need to give aid to the groups on the ground who know how to deliver it fast. (I began with the story of Omran and Kristof’s column on how his news about his pet dog got more response than his posts about the kids in Syria.)

  2. The White Helmets (also known as the Syria Civil Defense service) has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016. They are 2,900 volunteer search and rescue workers from local communities who risk their lives to save others and bring hope. So far they’ve saved 60,000 plus lives. Until today that is when three of their four centers were bombed by Assad.
