A Prayer for Syria

I’ve been doing a lot of reading up on what’s going on in Syria.  I’m not going to get into the whole political argument because governments are going to do whatever they want, but it breaks my heart to read the about the number of people who have been killed since the conflict began andContinue reading “A Prayer for Syria”
