Hi folks,

This video from Save The Children, which has been viewed over 22 million times on YouTube, and in which a year in the life of a young girl is played out at the rate of a second a day, attempts to highlight the horror of what's happening in Syria at the moment by showing us what it would look like if similar events were to play out here, in the UK. What do you think of it? Please share your thoughts and feelings below.

i found it really moving - i sobbed the first time actually. the girl shows the difference and change in emotions really well - a brilliant actress. but what i found amazing was each time i watched it i picked up something new again from the background. how tension was ramping up amongst the adults even as we saw scenes of her playing, and that is how it begins in most places long before shots are fired.
