Young Daniegh in the United States in this video is a demonstration of will and determination.
She was so thoughtful as to write me a letter with her support and beautiful words. I have never been so moved. You have touched my heart Daniegh and believe me, the Syrian people thank you we all do from the bottom of our hearts.
Dear Alex, My name is Daniegh (pronounced Dan-Yah) I am 9 years old,&I live in the southeast of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.I want you to know that you are my hero.I was doing my homework ,and i saw on anderson cooper360 a horrible video of 2 yr old ola al jablawi.i didnt know her name then ,so my family called her “BABY FREEDOM” .I could not believe any1 would butcher a innocent baby like that.Her face wasnt fully shown,so i looked it up on youtube.I CRIED SO HARD!When i seen it was your own leader,your own soldiers,i was mad as –well,HELL! Instead of my mom hiding the truth to me she was honest.IT WAS SOMETHING I COULD NOT SIT BY AND LET HAPPEN WITHOUT MY VOICE,AND RIGHT NOW YOUR PEOPLE NEEDS YOUR VOICE.You are Syria’s only hope..the young like us.The youth.I look middle eastern,Ive even been called a terrorist a time or 2 by ignorant people.Im actually Half Irish American, and half African American.I come from the slaves of the u.s.My grand father fought for civil rights in the u.s. during the civil right movement for african americans.THEIR LEADER MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WAS GUNNED DOWN..MANY PEOPLE WERE LYNCHED,HUNG,TORTURED,MUTILATED,ARRESTED,THEY HAD BIG GERMAN SHEPARD ATTACK DOGS THEY WOULD LET LOOSE ON THE CHILDREN…CHILDREN WERE ARRESTED…MY grandaddy say…”if u aint got nothing to die for,you got nothing to live for.freedom isnt free.”i believe that.He is looking at what is happening in Syria,and hurts,for he knows your fear…he said he would be so afraid during those marches his legs would shake,to where he thought he was gonna fall down.and his jaw would clench to where he could barely chant a word…BUT HE SAID IF HE DIDNT DO IT,THEN I WOULD STILL BE IN BONDAGE HERE IN AMERICA… I guess what i am trying to say is,I KNOW U FEEL ALONE.IT LOOKS AS IF THE WORLD HEARS NOTHING!BUT I HEAR YOU,MANY HEAR YOU.AND IF GOD IS WITH U,THEN WHO CAN BE AGAINST U? I DONT KNOW ALOT OF FEAR BECAUSE I AM FREE.I CAN SAY AND DO WHAT I WANT.BUT MANY MANY PEOPLE DIED FOR THAT RIGHT.HOW U ALL STAY NON VIOLENT I DONT KNOW.THAT SHOWS THE WORLD HOW BRAVE U ARE!!! THEY CAN TAKE YOUR FREEDOM,YOUR FOOD,EVEN YOUR LIVES,BUT THEY CANNOT KILL A DREAM.IT IS IN OUR SOULS AS A HUMAN RACE TO BE FREE.JUST THINK OF YOUR FUTURE CHILDREN…WILL THEY BE FREE?I hope to be able to come and visit a free syria some day soon.I WANT TO HUG AND SHAKE THE HANDS OF MY HEROES.TO HUG YOU. I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY EXCEPT, I LOVE YOU,MY BROTHER! PLEASE KEEP THE HOPE ALIVE…I havent had any heroes in a long time.BUT NOW I GO TO SCHOOL AND TELL MY FRIENDS AND TEACHERS ABOUT THE WONDERFUL SYRIAN FREEDOM FIGHTERS.and i make posters and shirts and I AM PROUD TO SAY I LOVE SYRIA,AND ITS PEOPLE. YOU,ALEXANDER, ARE MY HERO IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED! LoveAlways, Daniegh
