Syrian Refugees and Corona
I'm not here to downplay our current conditions. If you or your family have lost a loved one from Coronavirus, I can only imagine your heartache.
But for many of us, myself included, the truth is that our biggest loss in all this is extreme convenience, boredom, being stuck AT home (versus being forced OUT of your home), MONEY (I get it, the effects of financial loss can be huge- but likely not fatal- you WILL come back from this)...
5.6 million Syrians are refugees (forced out of their homes against their will), and another
6.2 million people are displaced within Syria.
Nearly 12 million people in Syria need humanitarian assistance.
At least half of the people affected by the Syrian refugee crisis are children.

I just read a few articles about the Syrian Refugee Crisis. Saw some pictures of the ruin families have encountered.
And that was ALL I needed to shift from an attitude of "another day"...to an attitude of gratitude and an enhanced desire to not just exist, but to really LIVE today.
I NEED TO REMIND MYSELF THIS MORNING...
The Greater is the Servant.
If you realize that you ARE in a blessed position right now...hat you are in fact filled with joy because you have more than you realized...I encourage you to serve 5 people today through text messages of inspiration, video calls just to check in, and social media posts that bring hope and inspiration to others.
