How to Help the Children of Aleppo
Alistair Reign News

Many are aware of the horrible atrocities going on in Aleppo on a daily basis. Most of us have seen the harrowing tales of adults and children alike being rescued from the remnants of a building that was diminished to rubble. Currently, evacuations have been halted, and the men, woman, and children left are trapped with little to no sustenance. Countless children have been made orphans and many will know a new life without their parents, siblings, or (in many cases) hope. I am well aware that finances are short this time of year, but please consider donating to causes that will help these children that have been through much more hardship than we could ever fathom.

The White Helmets

The White Helmets are Syrian civilian men and women from all walks of life that search for survivors among the wreckage of buildings even as bombs continue to fall. To date, they have saved over 73,000 lives. Along with searching for survivors among the wreckage, White Helmets are involved in other public service including reconnecting electrical cables, providing safety information to children and securing buildings.

Save The Children

Many of the children trapped in Aleppo are in need of medical care or attention. Could you imagine having an injured child and no means to help them? Save the Children helps deliver medical supplies as well as medical staff to help Syrian children. They also deliver food, water, and other necessities. Child protection and education programs are also being prepared in response to this travesty.

Hand in Hand for Syria

Hand in Hand for Syria deploys teams on the ground in Syria to deliver aid to the people under severe threat and who are trying to continue to survive in horrid conditions. They help those affected find a way to remain in Syria versus fleeing the country. Hand-in-hand provides food, water, sanitation products, and emergency medical care to those who are most in need.

The Syrian Orphans Organization

The Syrian Orphan Organization works around the clock providing orphans, women, and children with basic necessities vital to survival such as food, clean water, shelter, and medical attention. Through their orphan sponsorship program, they have support close to 2,000 orphans. However, through our various other initiatives such as their Zakat, Ramadan, Food Basket, and Winter Aid programs, they have reached several thousand more orphans and their families. A contribution of $2 a day for 12 months can lift an orphan's ENTIRE family out of poverty.

These are just a few examples of the many organizations working night and day to provide for and protect the children of Syria and their families. Long after the dust settles in Aleppo and the turmoil ceases, the destruction will remain. The children of Aleppo will need continued long-term support.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
