«We have the opportunity to do more important things than fighting»
The choice of peace made by Nazieh, a young Syrian man who lives in Damascus
A few weeks ago, we received the text of this experience signed by Nazieh, a young Syrian man from a little town near the city of Homs. We publish it as we received it (except for some adaptations for the translation).
«Hello, my name is Nazieh. I am from Syria and I want to share an experience from my life with all of you. I come from a village near Homs. Al Qaeda attacked this village in 2013. They entered the village and they killed about 40 people. Because of this war attack, many houses and all schools were destroyed. Two years later, ISIS attacked my village again, but this second time they didn’t enter the village. I lost my nephew, he died when facing ISIS because of a car which exploded when they attacked the village. Together with others from the village, we decided to help the people in our village: do something for them, bring them some joy to help them have a normal life again.
