Abdul Bassit after surviving an explosion in Syria that took both his legs (Twitter)
There is a video of an 8-year-old boy in Syria lying on the ground, moments after an alleged airstrike. His legs are gone, blown off at the knees.
His mother is dead. His sister is dead.
I watched yesterday… and as shocking as it was, I could almost handle it. Until he started crying, “Pick me up, daddy. Pick me up.”
