Peace never comes at a cheap price. In the Middle East, one might argue that peace never comes at all despite the best efforts, dedication and sacrifice of many heroes.
At the end of the day, politics change, policies change and politicians change but the suffering that results from them does not.Octavia Nasr
Take Syria for example with millions of Syrians scattered around a shadow of a country or around the Middle East, aimless refugees, uncertain if they will ever return home or to what they will return. There are so many stories of suffering and what seems like unbearable pain that Syrians feel through every waking moment. More than 100,000 people have been killed in the past two and a half years. Just imagine how many hearts are bleeding at the loss. Then take a look at the ghost cities left over from a catastrophic conflict. Hearts ache at the destruction and at hearing Syrians lament over their losses, pain and shock.
