The shortest blog post I will ever write.

Since Shireen slipped in her “Why do you work for Syria?” question in the middle of our conference call, I’ve been doing a lot of breaking down and building up of my intentions. It’s not enough to be heartbroken about Syria to move someone to work for the Syrian cause. My last post answered the question, “Why does Syria alarm you?”, but not the question that Shireen asked.

I work for Syria because I believe in Syrians. Because I believe in Syrian Americans. Because as a post-9/11 Arab/Muslim American, I should know better than to sit by while other people take control of my narrative.

This is the shortest blog post I will ever write because the answer is very simple.
