Passersby who came to visit the White House got more than just a typical view of one of the most important infrastructure in American History. They also got to witness firsthand the effects behind it. In this case, they got to see a 12 year old girl leading a protest, they were able to speak to a woman who was sobbing about her lost loved one and most importantly, they heard the single most repeated word that was loudly and proudly being chanted on everyone’s lips: Syria.
Protestors travelled from all over the country to demand what was rightfully theirs. “Freedom,” said Syrian-American protestor Yasmeen who flew in from Chicago. “The Syrian people demand for their freedom.”
Syrians and supporters alike chanted in unison as their voices filled every corner within the perimeter. “We want you to hear us!” shouted a man on the microphone as he pointed towards the White House. “Obama, can you hear us?”
And just in case Obama didn’t, hundreds of visitors and tourists on the day sure did. For the Syrian cause will never die, the protestors will continue to sing their hearts out, as men and women, children and elderly, Muslim and Christian continue to fight, for the fight is one.
