I’m scared of dreams….

I am walking in a house and then some snipers stand

in a circle around me.

And then

They shoot me!

One shoots me here and one shoots me here

And then one shoots me here.

I remember we used to walk around everywhere

and buy ice cream.

We would eat, shop, go everywhere.

You go past the checkpoints to the market.

You walk that way.

You see crowds of people.

There’s the ice cream!!

We love ice cream.

And people are like that and that….filling the street.

Like a demonstration.

They stop the traffic.

Like a demonstration.

And a little boy shouts

“The people want to topple the regime”.

Then we go home and collect shrapnel for daddy to make the bombs.

We want to help him topple the regime.

Sara, aged 5, Aleppo.

The situation is getting worse by the day. One of the most insidious things happening now is the presence of Al Qaeda and other jihadist groups that have come from outside of Syria. They are now trying to implement Sharia Law when and wherever the can. This includes everything from verbal warnings being issued to people about how they must now conduct themselves, to beating up people for smoking or drinking. Of course they are also looking after the welfare of women and young girls by beating them for wearing “western attire”. All this is happening to a society ravaged by 3 years of brutal oppression. The scale of the damage being done is akin to the final years of WW2.

It is said that a photograph never lies. If the photograph is taken with the eyes of a child then it may capture a truth that adults can no longer see.

Little Sara...I wonder how she is doing

I often wonder about her too. This is a video of her home. No sign of ice cream vendors.

I am trying to get in touch with the reporters that produced the documentary and will update if I hear back from them.

I was just watching the evening news on Channel Four, the producers of the documentary about Sara and her family. It was reported that Sara, her mother and two sisters have arrived in Germany as refugees. All are well. However their father was captured by ISIS and there is currently no news about his wellbeing.

Over the last few years I have often wondered what became of Sara. I cannot express how happy I am to have discovered that she is alive and well.

Channel Four will air a documentary on Tuesday 10th May at 22:00 which records the family’s journey from Aleppo to Germany. It was filmed by the German producer of the original programme.

It is linked above and here again.
