Hey everyone! So I don’t know if you’ve heard of the White Helmets, but they’re a group of neutral volunteers in Syria who are dedicated to rescuing people after bombings. It is an extremely dangerous thing to do; the Syrian government, who has been responsible for the deaths of over 300,000 (according to the United Nations) drop bombs when they see people congregating, and then drop a second bomb to specifically target the rescue efforts.
The good news is that the White Helmets have saved over 60,000 lives…just take a moment to imagine how big a number that is! If it weren’t for their bravery and sacrifice, the Syrian regime would manage to kill far more innocent people than they already have. The other good news is that their efforts are being recognized internationally! The organization has recently been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 🙂
I just wanted to share this with you girls…when we feel that there’s no hope left, we just have to look around us and find all these amazing heroes willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of others. What amazing inspiration, right? :,)
