Episode Description
Saturday, Nov 4, 2017 - 6:00 PM    "Syria's Civil War Through A Child's Eyes" Once Syria's second-largest city, Aleppo was bombed into ruins during the country's six-year civil war before government forces wrested control of it last year. But amid the steady stream of destruction and death, one of the hopeful faces of the plight of the Syrian people is a girl named Bana Alabed. At 7 years old, and caught between government forces and rebels, along with her family and thousands of other Syrians, Bana took to Twitter, posting snippets of her family's struggle to survive, through the death of her best friend and the loss of their home.
