  1. The Syrian crisis is heartbreaking. How can we absorb the entirety of a nation? Really, any of us? We can all take a few and try to help, but the problem is the decline of a country, a people.They are forming a new diaspora. And I see no viable solutions around the corner. Simply heartbreaking.
