I don’t watch the news. I don’t read news papers. I occasionally listen to Radio 4. It might make me ignorant but it is the way that I choose to live my life.
But I do go on Twitter every day and today my eyes were opened to something that I can hardly bear to read or think about. But I must. Even I cannot ignore this.
But I have sat here for the last ten minutes and I can’t write about it. I feel sick and sure that I must do something but I can’t find the way to do it other than this. There are so many eloquent posts out there, check the #tippingpoint #syria #stopthekilling hashtags. I have no words.
I have tweeted. I have signed petitions and posted them to my Facebook timeline.
I am writing about it here so that I can encourage you to go and sign the Save the Children petition and also the Avaaz one.
Please, each takes just 30 seconds. Take 1 minute of our privileged, safe lives to tell someone out there that killing children is unacceptable.
