Tons of tears

I am crying.

Today, I’m watching the news and saw NBC’s version of this.

Death.

Starvation.

People reduced to eating grass and leaves because resources are being blocked. The blockade is being sanctioned by the Bashar al-Assad government in Syria.

How can this be OK?

Videos smuggled out. And now they will let aid in. But nobody knows how much.

This from The Guardian: 

It remains unclear how much aid will be allowed into Madaya, situated a few miles from Damascus, where people have been reduced to scouring grass from minefields and eating tree leaves and boiling water flavoured with spices. A kilogram of rice now costs around $250 (£170) there.

Those poor people. Those poor babies.

Goodness.
