YOUR HOMETOWN -Just as it seems all hope has been lost for Syrian refugees, in lieu of the immigration ban set by President Trump, a light at the end of the tunnel has been spotted. Deborah Thomas, 51 year old mother of four, liked an image of a crying Middle Eastern child on Facebook to show her support. The image has been circulating social media for quite some time now, but this particular image was paired with the text “Please like to show support for the Syrian refugees.” Deborah being the wholesome Christian woman she is felt an overwhelming wave of emotion when the image appeared on her Facebook feed.
“It was almost like seeing one of those Sarah McLaughlin ASPCA commercials, but not as sad,” said Thomas. Although liking the picture doesn’t directly, or indirectly help the cause of the refugees, Deborah Thomas held her chin high, feeling as if she made a real difference.
“I don’t want to be regarded as a hero or anything, I just think it’s time to help those Libyans or wherever it is they’re from. They all kinda blend together, you know?”
The 51 year old said she even felt compelled to share it, but had already shared an image of a really cute Corgi-Golden retriever mix, and didn’t want to bombard all 24 of her Facebook friends with “a bunch of random shit.”
Upon further investigation, the crying child depicted in the image actually isn’t Syrian, but Argentinian, and was crying after Germany won 4-0 against Argentina in the 2010 world cup. Regardless, the idea of compassion was there, and that’s how Deborah Thomas played her part in removing ISIS and helping the Syrian children.
