This is why.
This is why I will go to cities like Suruc to teach English and share God’s love.
This is why I will invest a portion of each day learning a language I did not even know existed a year ago.
This is why I gave up everything I had in New York to hop on a plane and begin a completely new life in a new world.
This is why I continue to write and speak ad nauseam that the fact America and the West refuse to open their doors wider for refugees is nothing more than criminal negligence.
This is why I exist.
Some people call me insane.
The fact that so many will see something like this and then continue on with their comfortable first world lives… that is what I call insane.
Don’t be crazy. Please, pray for Syria. Pray for the Kurdish and Arab peoples. Pray now. Pray tonight and every day from now until God calls you to come join us.
