Suffering in Silence

No words can describe this scene; of a child sitting on the floor, hugging her knees close to her chest, and searching within herself for love and security. She makes us feel like she is an alien, like she does not belong to any creatures. Her eyes are cities of sadness. This girl who is barely ten years old was sent to Jordan with relatives to protect her from the crisis raging inside Syria. This child lost her parents while they are still alive; they sent her away to save her from injustice, yet her soul is suffering in a silence that cannot be put in words.
