When I created this blog I set out to make it as gorgeous as possible. I fill it with posts about people and places and things I love. I blog about issues that affect so many of us as parents from time to time, but I tend to steer away from anything too unbearable, too awful.
Sometimes, though, events happen thousands of miles away which demand our attention. The massacre of innocent children in Houla, Syria, and the killings that continue, must stop.
Today I’m joining other bloggers to protest against the killings in Syria, to say that we as parents deplore what is going on, and we want it to stop. If you’re on Twitter, please RT this post and any others you see using the hashtags #Syria #StopTheKilling and #tippingpoint.
It may not seem like much, and maybe no one who has the power to stop these atrocities is listening. But it’s always better to do something than nothing.
