“Syrians are dying by the thousands, and they’re fighting just to talk about the rights we have,” Mueller said.
“For as long as I live, I will not let this suffering be normal. (I will not let this be) something we just accept,” Mueller said. “It’s important to stop and realize what we have, why we have it and how privileged we are. And from that place, start caring and get a lot done.”
Kayla spoke these kind words about the plight of Syrian refugees nearly two full years prior to her death, as reported in her hometown paper The Daily Courier (Prescott, Arizona). Her story was recounted in this write-up in the Guardian, where I first read her words – nothing about the situation in Syria has ever been normal, and Kayla will not be forgotten.
