Pipe and Pressure Cooker bombing fallout: NJ, NYC. With the “if you see something, say something,” directive, terrorist Ahmed Khan Rahami was captured in Linden, NJ.

Who are the White Helmets of Syria? They are The Syrian Civil Defense– brave civilians who don a white helmet and  rescue their fellow countrymen from the rubble often caused by barrel bombs, (explosives w/shrapnel, oil, chlorine), that rain down on neighborhoods. Omran Daqneesh, the shell-shocked, dusty 6-year old who became “the face of Aleppo,” was saved by White Helmets. Netflix has a produced a documentary about the extraordinary lives of these men who choose to run into buildings that are being bombed and save lives. The White Helmets have been nominated to receive the Novel Peace Prize. If they do, and receive world wide attention, will public pressure  be applied to stop the barrel bombing?
