• Air lift materials that are defensive for chemical weapons to as many people in Syria as possible, i.e. gas masks, body suits, anything to provide viable protection to everyone who is in harm’s way
• Provide any medical materials that can be used to treat those who are attacked
• Set up evacuation points near the border to assist anyone who wants out of Syria
• Provide assistance relocating existing (and future) refugees who need a solution to their predicament that will last as long as the situation persists
• Grant (or at least expedite) asylum to anyone from Syria who applies, just as the U.S. expedites asylum to any Cuban refugee who applies
I realize these are not simple goals to implement. But I'd love to see us put our minds, our treasure, and the force of our leadership to work on responses of kindness. I’m confident kind acts would be more effective in countering violence, demonstrating moral courage, and earning the affection of those on whose behalf we are acting.
