Why Didn’t They Choose Peace?

As we summarize the last 10 years in Syria, we see nothing but devastation.

 

Every single family in Syria has been touched by tragedy. We all have a family member who was killed, or imprisoned, tortured, left injured, or homeless.

 

The people suffer, the buildings are destroyed–everything is bad.

 

No food, freezing in cloth tents, no homes, no education–we are now a few generations of people without hope.

 

When the peaceful demonstrations began, why were they not met with roses instead of violent deaths?

 

Why did the Assad regime not choose peace?
