Imagine yourself living in a country where this scene has happened at least 400,000 times over the last 7 years or those who never had a chance to properly bury a loved one. Imagine a childhood where two-thirds of children are said to had their house damaged, destroyed by air strikes, or suffered conflict-related injuries. Imagine yourself being forced to flee a country where 5 million people already fled to seek refuge abroad or those, who could not then stay displaced internally living in deprived conditions in makeshift camps. It seems some world leaders cannot imagine any of those unfortunate experiences, since the brutal war in Syria is about to reach another stage of confrontation and violence. The statistics mentioned here are from a recent Human Rights Watch report.
Relatives mourn a loved one, who died after stepping on a mine in Raqqa, during a funeral ceremony in Kobani, northern Syria. For more about the conflict in Syria and its consequences, follow @limauricio
