        Limbo is a 10 minute documentary following Nancy Rios, a Cuban woman who was exiled from her country after she went to Germany. She was forced to leave her family behind and now manages to create a family among the other refugees that live with her. Limbo's engaging narrative about family and challenging situations will hopefully inspire, those who find themselves in similar situations as Nancy, to remain positive and persevere.

                Everyone dreams of being the hero. Bringing down the wall. Stopping the tanks. Taking down the enemy. Changing the course of history. Jesus told a parable about a samaritan who acted heroically, and he challenged us to go and do likewise. When the Samaritan found the man half dead in the ditch, he was probably on his way to do important things. He had life plans, he had responsibilities, just like you. He wasn't looking for another cause, but he chose to change history. Today in Syria, millions of civilians are suffering at the hands of an evil dictator and Islamic extremists. They have been bombed without mercy and slaughtered indiscriminately. Two million refugees, half of them children, are now abandoned, destitute, and suffering. Heroes are not limited by culture, distance, cost, or risk. Their only limitation is choice. A choice to stop and intervene on behalf of the helpless, or go through life with disregard. Hero's pay the price, take the hit, get their hands dirty for those who can never repay. Today we are the Church. We can be the good Samaritan.  Let's lock arms and be the hero. ___________ Photo Credits ____________ RTX17XD6 Damaged buildings line a street in the besieged area of Homs January 27, 2014. The United States on Monday demanded that Syria allow aid into the "starving" city of Homs, as talks aimed at ending three years of civil war hit more trouble over the future of President Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian government said women and children could leave the besieged city and that rebels should hand over the names of the men who would remain. A U.S. State Department spokesman said an evacuation was not an alternative to immediate aid.

A Syrian artillery barrage killed more than 90 people, including dozens of children, in the worst violence since the start of a U.N. peace plan to staunch the flow of blood from Syria's uprising, activists said on Saturday. The bloodied bodies of children, some with their skulls split open, were shown in footage posted to YouTube purporting to show the victims of the shelling in the central town of Houla on Friday. The sound of wailing filled the room.

Syria evacuated three busloads of civilians from a besieged area of Homs on Friday, the first stage of a planned three-day humanitarian ceasefire in the city which has suffered some of the worst devastation of Syria's three-year conflict. The buses carrying dozens of weary-looking evacuees, accompanied by Syrian Arab Red Crescent officials, arrived at a meeting point outside Homs watched by soldiers and police.

                      For several years I've been studying Sudan's political turmoil and the resulting migrations of tribes around and into South Sudan as border tensions fluctuate. These tensions are not new to a country divided not only ethnically, but spiritually and economically as a predominant Arab government in Khartoum has, until recent history, held the economic purse strings for a largely animist, agriculturally based South Sudan. On July 9, 2011, South Sudan voted to secede from the North splitting the country in half and taking with it most of the country's oil reserves. Tensions grew into armed conflicts along the new border. Suddenly choices about where to live and raise families had to be made for the marginalized living along the border. Where to farm and find food? Many times splintered by blasts in the black of night, tribes ran blindly into the bush seeking refuge. Tightly knit for generations these tribes, having relied--with their lives--for years on one another, now had unraveled and become refugees within their own country. This is a mere snapshot of these lives.
