Children, hopefully by now, most of you have safely made it to one of the refugee camps - preferably in Turkey, where I understand the care is exemplary, or some of you have made it onto the continent of Europe, in search of solace, a new home and hope away from the wrath of Bashar al Assad's war.
I will continue to pray and to advocate for your better welfare and for your accorded dignity as this humanitarian tragedy and blight upon civilization that is the Syrian war, continues. I will continue to push for justice for your fallen families and peers so that their lives may not have been lost in vain.
However, though many of you might have found temporary shelter, you should never accept or treat patchwork accommodations and mediocrity as an end to your aspirations.
As you age, continue to demand more of your governance and insist that the institutions of good governance are created, maintained and sustained. While many of you might never see your birth land again, wherever you are, there will be difficulties and challenges to adapting to new environs. Adapt and cope as best you can. Love humanity in spite of its failing you. Always embrace freedom and advocate for the rule of law and equality. May God Bless all of you.
