Our hope will be stronger. Our love will prevail.
The main performance was about the hopes for Syria. The first scene portrayed the country as the children were seeing it today: bombed to ruins, mutilated, destroyed. Many of the children and many of the visitors could not hold back their tears, as so vividly described by our international volunteers on their blog space. The second and third stages were illustrating Syria's future recovery and hope for justice and peace. It all ended with an energetic Dabka dance, the traditional middle eastern steps that are solemnly performed in every village or community at special occasions. Other acts of the evening included traditional Syrian and Islamic hymns along with an emotional song performed by our student Heyam on Syrian orphan children.
This night of fraternity was concluded with many songs and smiles. Thanks to the children of our camp school, our guests from Akkar and from around the world could grasp a feeling of true solidarity that goes beyond any formal declaration. We were united as a family. We were united as humanity.
