The destruction in Syria and the amount of war in the last 100 years is disheartening, Hannah. The modern West has experienced so much peace that I do not think we could handle what is everyday life for many people in the region. The actions of outside actors like the U.S. are sobering and it makes me wonder what it would be like if there were no outside forces that have played as much of a role as the United States or Russia has. I’m praying for peace too!
