While the war in Syria is continues to rage, it is very easy to forget about the civilians that are on the ground. Innocent bystanders are still caught in the middle of a conflict that appears to have no foreseeable end. While bombs drop, and gunfights rage in the streets, some Syrian civilians are willing to fight for a different cause.
Risking life and limb, civilian first responders drive towards the sound of chaos. To them, the only thing that matters is saving lives.
When I watched this video, I was immediately reminded of our own first responders on 9/11. The only real different between those men and women at Ground Zero, and the men portrayed in this video, is the fact that this is their every day life struggle. It has been since March 15, 2011.
