This Is What War Does to Children

A new video by the international NGO, Save the Children, showing what war looks like through the eyes of a child, has gone viral. The video brings war a little bit closer to the West. It begins and ends with a little girl celebrating her birthday. Over the course of one year, one painfully witnesses the light in her eyes evanesce, leaving a flatulent, piercing stare and a dry tear that trickles down her cheek as she blows out her birthday candle.

The video that marks the third anniversary of the conflict in Syria, attempts to draw attention to the horrifying circumstances Syrian children are enduring.
