Recycling Heritage

  Were in not for the caves dug in the living rock in prehistoric times and  were it not for  the graves and tombs of their ancestors and bygone civilizations, many more homeless, uprooted Syrians would have died during their flight from the elements and the engines of doom doggedly pursuing them. The forgotten Dead Cities of Syria are alive with refugees and children even as I write now.

Prehistoric men dug their caves high in the hills and mountains to escape animals and the forces of nature. Contemporary Syrians seek refuge in the same caves in order to escape much more ruthless predictors who defile the earth and tear the heavens.

The mercy and compassion of graves and ancestral tombs
