The Tipping Point - use your voice!

Syria - A day of protest

The blogging community is today using its voice en masse to speak out about the Syrian atrocities.  

Last weekend a massacre happened in Houla.  Children slaughtered in their own homes, whole families violently killed.  Babies executed.

Although I wept as I read about what had happened and wanted to look away I wouldn't, couldn't for although the stories were graphic and sickening we need to know what is happening in the world around us.  In that massacre 108 men, women and children were slaughtered without mercy.

I am adding my voice in addition to so many others in the blogging community to raise awareness to the cause and  to show I will not ignore the deaths of innocent children.  I am a Mother and am prepared to tell the world I will not look the other way and claim ignorance.

Although the politics behind the conflicts are not fully understood by myself, massacre is. 

This is the tipping point.

So what can you do?
