    This poem really hits hard. As someone who knows a Syrian family and how much grief they've been through ever since the war started, I find this truly very poignant. You describe the event in such a way that the reader can see it in their minds, the chaos and horror and tragedy of it all, and the terrible feeling of not knowing - not quite - what it is that has been deployed.
