Re: Who cares for the nine million displaced people of Syria?

Peace equals health, but health is the prequel, and peace is the sequel. Health is nutrition, not addiction; and peace is contrition, not conviction. With balance and fairness, not bias or fear, peace and health are the peak of the meek and the hill of the holy, who offer a merciful refuge from war and sickness in the valley of the bully and the gully of the guilty.

Competing interests: I have a self-published e-book called "Peace Poetry & The LOVE Diet", which promotes peace, simplifies health, and demystifies addiction.
