    I find this story fascinating. She has love written on her hand when just days before she lost both her parents and entire family due to conflict in Syria. I think that takes a lot of courage. If anyone has anymore details about her please post. I would like to send some money to help support her in this situation she found herself in.

    Thanks

    I've written things on my hand before.

    It takes less courage then you might imagine.

    Oh ok, so she's not courageous? That's the most awful thing I've heard in a awhile. If you lost your entire family at 9 years old due to war, and had the courage to think love and not hate, I would commend you.

    Instead you're saying it's not a big deal. I'm actually offended and angry by that.

    Dude, it was a goof post based off your OPs ambiguous use of the English language.

    Write "patience" on your hand ... And see if it makes any difference.

    This is no laughing matter. The fact that you would write goof posts to troll such a tragic event is disgusting and offensive to me :mad:

    What a coincidence, I just saw this video last night.

    You might learn something from it.

    I saw girls in Afghanistan and Iraq with amazing green eyes, like wet emeralds. Very photogenic.

    NatGeo tacked down this particular girl a few years after the 2003 invasion. Naturally, she had no idea of her famous photograph.

    Many many many thousands of Syrian civilians killed = vague sense of sadness.

    Two American journalists killed = WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!!!

    :rolleyes:
