A Civil War Hits London, This Shocking One Second a Day Video Shows How it Destroys a Little Girl’s Life
this is happening in so many places every damn day. i understand this add is about syria, but this is also happening in the DRC to children like this little girl. children and women are suffering abuse, sexually and physically, threatened by their own country’s “army” as well as rebel forces, are being displaced from their homes and forced into extreme poverty, or are being shipped off to illegal mines to work in ditches for days on end without sunlight or even enough room to stand up. and no one hears about it because the media deemed it “too depressing”. OH REALLY?!? REALLY. ellen’s selfie tweet is the most retweeted thing in social media history, but a majority of the people on my small school’s campus do not know what is happening internationally every day except for the scheduling of “doctor who” on BBC.
in less than 24 hours i will be at the UN as a witness to the proceedings on how to deal with the humanitarian crisis happening in the Congo.
i want people to realize that this is happening, every single day. that this video is not just a creative advertisement in some children’s lives.
