This picture of a Syrian child became famous after one of many brutal airstrikes in Aleppo forced him into the back of an ambulance. The boy, covered in blood and dust, was completely silent, an effect of the traumatizing event he had been through. His picture flooded across social media, opening the eyes of many to the tragedy taking place in Syria for the very first time. Seeing the horror it is imposing upon children and the innocence they symbolize was a shock for the Western world that has turned its back on the bloody conflict for years. The image speaks to mothers and fathers, people who can ask themselves, “What if that was my my son or daughter?” It is a powerful piece that has changed public image and moved some to speak for the children in Syria who are silenced.
