But today, much of the public despises al Shabab for its amputations, stonings, and beheadings of Somali citizens (punishments utterly alien to Somalia’s traditional version of Islam); its recruitment of children; its cold-blooded use of civilians as human shields; and its harsh taxation schemes. Without public support, al Shabab may be able to launch the occasional suicide bombing or plant the odd roadside bomb in the middle of the night, but a sustained guerrilla campaign will simply be scattershot and ineffective.

It breaks my heart every time that I see the images coming to my television screen, to my emails and even on tumblr.
The images of parents clutching the hands of their scared, malnourished and disease suffering children. Children with beautiful, wide and dark eyes that just cry out for help. Eyes that are pools of blackness, full of pain, terror and beauty.
I hate that I am so fortunate and I just wish that I could give everything that I possess up for these children.
It breaks my heart to see the hurt that they are going through.
They are living through a crisis that we here in the West cannot even fully comprehend.
So I ask you, take a minute, a second even to think of these children and imagine yourself in their shoes. (Or in the soles of their bare feet.)
