I learned more about Syria this weekend from a humble but incredibly moving Netflix documentary that I saw “The White Helmets“. They are the first responders who get to the scene of an airstrike before anyone else. These volunteers are incredible. Their words, their attitudes and their love for their fellow citizens (regardless of political preference) is breathtaking.
The White Helmets were only formed in 2013. Since then they have lost over 130 of their colleagues, while saving over 58,000 people.
They’re an incredible group. My words won’t do them justice.
So head over to Netflix and see for yourself. I promise you – it will 40 minutes well spent….
