From Syria to Boston, with Love

Now, anyone who knows me knows I try to find the silver lining of humanity. This has become very hard of late, then life throws a curveball your way and you kind of feel an odd feeling deep down. The recent events in Boston are tragic to say the least, but you'd do well to know that far worse things occur all over the world, many of which are something many would consider crimes against nature.

I saw this on Facebook the other day, it made me feel pretty damn good.

I won't even pretend to know what the people of Syria, or anyone in the Middle East goes through everyday because of us, but this is just proof that no matter what differences we may have, tragedies such as what we went through (again, miniscule in comparison to their own tragedies) are able to unite all of us.

Syria, and all other countries who have sent their thoughts and prayers to Boston (there are many, just Google 'Syria sends prayers to Boston' under images), thank you, your thoughts mean a lot, not only to the people of Boston, but the people of America (we aren't all assholes :D). May your God (and every other God) bless you and yours for eternity.
