Love Syria! Not an original idea, this idea comes from Ronny Edry and his campaign for peace in the middle east. See his TED Talk.
It’s amazing how people are improving major problems in the world.
- Violence: Ronny Edry is a graphic designer who is using Facebook to to spread love between Israel and Iran, but it has now spread to all nations around the world. Just as violence begets more violence, we learn how Love can be spread as well, and multiplied.
