Lord, have mercy!
The Syrian refugee crisis is a global emergency. May the United States, Canada, and many other nations step in immediately and provide humanitarian aid, security support, and resettlement.
The following videos will disturb you. Here's what we've been saying. The refugee crisis resulting from the violence in Syria has created an overwhelming refugee crisis. The camps are overcrowded and growing every day. Most of the refugees are women and children (like 75-80%). They are vulnerable and now evil men are taking advantage of the situation. Unless drastic action is taken immediately, we may be on the verge of one of the worst trafficking situations in history.
After watching, let me encourage you to share this post with others. Also, if you are a church leader (or if you know a church leader) read and share my post on how churches should prepare for the coming Syrian "tidal wave". Then, read and add your endorsement to my "Open Letter to Displaced Syrians". Or you can check out all my posts on the Syrian crisis here.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles.
From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
