Tons of tears

I am crying.

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



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.
