I'm an Industrial Designer from Toronto, Canada (Currently living abroad in Australia)
I have watched the degrading situation in the Middle East since the heady and optimistic days of the Arab Spring. It is truely sad that out of all that potential and hope, war has once again raised its ugly head.
I can no longer reconcile being an impartial observer... wringing my hands at the sidelines.
It is up to the younger generation to learn from the mistakes of the past and make ourselves accountable for our own destiny. Cynicism and ignorance are no longer an excuse.
A famous person once said 'If you can't feed 100 people, feed 1 person'. Everyone should strive to do their part no matter how small. This is my small attempt to positively affect a few people's lives.
