This painting “Omran, Angels Are Here! is by Salt Lake City artist Judith Mehr.
Omran Daqneesh is the Syrian 5-year-old Syrian who was injured and shell shocked in an airstrike believed to have been by the Russian Air Force.
Omran’s 10-year-old brother Ali died in the attack while the rest of the family was rescued from their apartment building that collapsed shortly after the rescue.
Chinese and Russian media (propagandists) have dismissed the image of the child, which has had enduring viral circulation on the internet, “propaganda.”
Lord in your mercy, we pray that somehow your will for peace on earth, good will and justice for all will prevail. Amen.
