This coming Sunday 26 January, I invite you to join us to be with Sarah Kuziez, a 2013 graduate of Maryville University. Having been inspired by Sarah’s passion, spirit, and resourcefulness, I encouraged her to share some of her story. She sent me the following for this announcement…
Fear, anticipation, grief…these three words describe my emotions during the first few months after the start of the Syrian Revolution on March 15, 2011. I wanted nothing more than to get involved immediately and voice my opposition to the Syrian regime with the millions already doing so.
Fear for my relatives’ lives inside Syria stopped me at the time. But the fear died with every peaceful protestor that was killed, and standing by was no longer an option.
Now, almost 3 years later, demonstrations, rallies, and fundraisers are just not sufficient to change Syria. Real work and awareness are required for real results, not only in the Syrian community, but throughout every community nationally and internationally.
Syria has always taken up a large part of my heart. And now it has become my passion, my focus, my life.
And bring a friend
