Imagine there’s a war. Where do you go? What do you take? For the people of Syria this is not just an intellectual game. Nobody wants to leave their home. They all try to stay to the last. They wonder what will be left when they leave everything behind. Perhaps the cup of coffee in the morning will be their last? Bombs are falling in the background. Images of devastated cities and interviews with people who still live there show that war is not abstract. It’s happening now.
