Ummayad mosque in Damascus, surrounded by the dense city.This news made me feel sick.
I should be far more moved by what's happening to people, but word of the destruction of Aleppo's historic landmark holds my attention.
I don't read hardly anything the U.S. media offers up about Syria. Our government is not innocent here and we are simply ignorant. But this article captures something of the little bit I saw of Syria.
The whole is worth reading.
If -- when -- US involvement in Syria becomes more visible, I don't think there will be much of a citizen response here. We don't know enough.
