I know a beautiful soul when I see one. You can never meet them without being touched. They’re like lights in the middle of darkness. You jump to them for protection, warmth, guidance, love, an honest advice, a sincere deed and you always keep an eye on them wherever you go in life. They’re human too, obviously, and their humanness is the finishing touch to an already fascinating being.
So gentle, so kind, so alive, yet so approachable. I love such people.
In a statement earlier this week, the shrine of Imam Ali announced that “it is ready to host the Christian families who departed their houses in fear of being killed by what is so called the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.” The deputy secretary-general of the Holy Shrine, Zuhair Shurba, told IraqiNews.com “The Holy Shrine can host many Christian families and provide them all their basic needs.”
Reportedly, the offer is also available to Sunnis, Kurds and all other Iraqis fleeing violence at the hands of ISIS. Following the announcements, the Iraqi city of Basra also opened its facilities to displaced Christians, and is reportedly hosting approximately 100 families from surrounding regions.
