INNOCENCE LOST

While the Rio Olympics are going on, while the incessant “bombardment” of inane politics goes on, while children are getting ready to start this school’s term, while politicians continue their unwarranted push to dominate the little domains they oversee, this child suffers.

This child’s world has been up-ended.

He seems to be in shock, he’s alone, he’s hurt, he’s bleeding.

It this was humanity has come to?

Multiply that by thousands and you will see the results of humanity’s effort to dominate others.

Our sad reality!

CNN’s Kate Bolduan Begins to Cry While Sharing Video of Bloodied Syrian Child

~~Published on Aug 18, 2016~~

CNN’s Kate Bolduan is a reporter who asks tough questions and is often expressive and emphatic when she does it. Today, however, she was expressive in a very different way. While sharing a video of a five-year-old Syrian named Omran Daqneesh sitting in the back of an ambulance with blood and soot all over him, Bolduan was tasked with explaining that he and his family were pulled from the rubble that was once their house. She said that there had been an air strike — which is common, as the country has been embroiled in a violent civil war for years — but had to stop and compose herself a few times.

There is little point in describing her visceral reaction when you can watch it right here for yourself:

“What strikes me is we shed tears, but there are no tears here,” she observed as her voice cracked. “He doesn’t cry once. That little boy is in total shock. He’s stunned, inside his home one moment and the next, lost in the fury and the flurry of war and chaos.”

After sharing how many thousands have died in Aleppo, Syria, alone, she closed with, “This is Omran.

He’s alive.

We wanted you to know.”

They do a lot of things to make us go from our land,’ says Janna.

Nabi Saleh, occupied West Bank – Palestinian Janna Jihad Ayyad, who turned 10 this month, counts herself among the youngest journalists in the world.

A resident of the village of Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank, Janna, along with many other local children, regularly participates in demonstrations against the Israeli occupation. She began making videos of what was happening in her village when she was only seven.

“Not a lot of journalists are sending our message from Palestine to the world, so I thought, ‘why not send my message … and show them what is happening in my village’,” Janna told Al Jazeera.

On Facebook, Janna describes herself as a news personality, and has attracted more than 22,000 followers.

Her page includes several videos of her participating in demonstrations and confronting Israeli soldiers.

Her reports are delivered in both Arabic and English.

“My camera is my gun,” Janna explains. “The camera is stronger than the gun … I can send my message to small people, and they can send it to others.”

Her mother, Nawal Tamimi, says she is both scared for and proud of her young daughter.
