The white tents in the distance are the Zeytouna Syrian refugee camp. Or rather the "displaced" Syrians who used to have a, by western standards, normal looking middle class lifestyle with families and houses, and soccer practice and because of a horrible dictator along the lines of a Hitler (my opinion) have lost basically everything. In the process they've seen horrible crimes against humanity, including their children. Looking back on all my pictures, this one seemed to sum it up to me. My fellow volunteers where mostly from Syria and now lived abroad in different countries. Here they are a few hundred yards from the country they had to flee and they couldn't go any closer. They wanted to help those people in the tents, they wanted to go back home.. It was really sad to see.
Please look over the Prints page and get them all.
Have a good Thanksgiving if that's what you want.
