My Valentine…Syria


A massacre for Valentines day..

Happy valentines day to the man who lost his wife as his home was bombed.

Happy valentines day to the man who watched his sister be raped before his eyes.

Happy valentines day to the man who had his skin burnt with acid and his eyes pulled out in Assad prisons.

Happy valentines day to the man who was pushed out of his home to become a refugee.

Happy valentines day to the man who held onto the left over finger and toe of his baby under the rubble.

Happy valentines day to the man who kissed his mothers head and went out to protest and never returned.

Happy valentines day to the man speaking to media every day risking his life.

Happy valentines day to the man running under sniper shots to get bread for his family.

Happy valentines day to the man ran over by a tank.

Happy valentines day to the man now left mentally ill after suffering rape by Assad forces.

Happy valentines to the man who ran to save a child from the shooting only to end up dead as well.

Happy valentines day to the men who have stolen my heart, the men of Syria in prison, at home, in the street, in a mass grave, in a fridge or in a tent…

The greatest and bravest men of all times.
