The current situation in northers Iraq right now seems to be completely without hope. We despair and can be paralysed to inaction by the awful events of thousands of miles away presented on screens inches from our faces. Liking a post or sharing a link are really infinitesimally small acts in contrast to the enormity of the genocide taking place.
But there are things we can do. In Crisis in Iraq – five things you can ACTUALLY do to help, Martin Saunders makes a compelling case and provides all the links you need to do something. Before posting this, I have.
We may not be there helping, but we can send money to support those who are.
We may not be able to speak to governments, but together we have a voice.
If you’re going to share something, share something that invokes an action that others can also take.
Even if you’re not someone who prays, there are still four things you can do that will make a difference.
