For us, being far from Syria and seeing the conflict is something unbearable. We learned through this years to appreciate what we once had. we hope everyday to return to Syria one day and see all those places again. To bring back all the beautiful memories in our mind.

We would like to share some pictures with you to show you how we remember Syria…
