I’m sitting at Starbucks listening to the sound made by the shoes of people walking in and out on the tile floor.

When my father told me about the Holocaust, I asked how people all over the world could stand by and let that happen. He said it was a secret at first. People cared but when someone is in office and controlling a powerful military, it is difficult to intervene.

I read today about an ‘extermination’ in a prison in Syria. Most of the people being hung in groups of thirty are civilians who spoke out against the regime. What do I do now?
