Sometimes the scale of an atrocity like what is now going on in Syria is so large that it requires a single person whose fate becomes the only accessible measure of it. For me, that person is Amina Abdallah, who blogs as “A Gay Girl in Damascus.” She has already once escaped arrest and almost certain murder at the hands of Syrian security forces. She was abducted today. Please call or write the Syrian Embassy in Ottawa and let them know you are looking out for her. We cannot save everyone from these thugs, but we can let them know we would if we could.
