Azaz has lost faces today, children, women, and elderly who will be buried forever without anyone knowing their stories… The moments they spent underneath all the rubble. The moments they kept excruciatingly inhaling the last breathes as seconds passed by, praying someone would reach them and pull them out before they sleep forever. Meg23 destroyed a whole district along with the memories its residents held in their minds and hearts. This happens in Syria everyday. Nothing would compensate the hearts we are losing daily in Syria. Silence and let the agony, tears, and pain speak to you..
