A small, local step to ease international suffering from war, drought

BHamHeraldarticle

I had the fortune to visit Syria in the 1990s and again in 2008. The very old country was full of the kindest people, there were antiquities everywhere one looked, and some of the wildest drivers! Today, Syria is in ruins. What happened? What is not mentioned is the drought that started in 2006 that has led to this devastating war. It has been called the worst in the past 900 years and absolutely worst these last 500 years.
