This past weekend, a Syrian man shared his experiences during Lexington's Christian-Muslim Dialogue Group. Iyad Jabbor says he's fearful that his home country will never be what it once was.  Jabbor works at the University of Kentucky.  He came to America in 2013, following the Syrian uprising.  Jabbor says the historic sites in the Syrian town of Alleppo are gone, some dating back 10,000 years.  “The essence of Syria that we liked, that we loved, the places that we liked to hang in, all the ruins; these are not gonna be replaceable,” said Jabbor.

From the NPR Two Way Blog: President Obama is expected to speak from the Rose Garden about Syria shortly, but a White House official says his remarks will not be about imminent military operations.

Instead, the official, who asked not to be named, said the president will update the public about his decision on how to proceed.

The president has been considering a limited military strike against Syria, but he said Friday that he hadn't yet made a decision.
