I helped one of my students, Elsa Lee, create this video to make us think about what the Christmas season really means and the plight of our fellow human beings, particularly those suffering in Aleppo.

I know it’s sad, and not what people want to think about during the holidays, but that’s kinda the point. It’s what we should be thinking about and doing more to help prevent. No, I don’t have some great, wise and simply answer about what to do for the people of Aleppo, but I do know that we, myself included, have done far too little. As people use to ask, “WWJD?” = What Would Jesus Do? I know he wouldn’t be railing against refugees and saying, “It’s not my problem,” and nor should we.
