The image of a five-year-old boy drenched in blood and terror has left the internet in a heart-wrenching state. While the government stands deaf towards the hues and cries of these innocent victims, the world just can’t take any more repercussions of terrorism.
Kate Bolduan, a US broadcaster, shared the shocking footage of this boy being picked from the rubble along with his family members, and she couldn’t hold back her tears. Her voice begins to crack as the footage plays.
Bolduan was tasked with explaining the situation of this five-year-old, Omran Daqneesh, sitting in the back of an ambulance, while his family was being pulled from the debris that was once his house. She further explained the difference between the lives of these people living in Syria during a brutal civil war and American children.
This video is a testament to our ignorance and acceptance, to the consequence that is partly our responsibility. The tension in Syria seems to be never-ending, but who is to blame? The hard and uncertain truth is surfacing all over the web and we’ve forgotten that all human lives have value and they’re worth every bit of it.
In the end, she finishes:
“This is Omran. He’s alive. We wanted you to know.”
