In our crazy world a meeting of notable leaders in London Thursday is trying to raise money for aid for the displaced and suffering people of and in Syria as we also spend money bombing those same countries.
But one lasting image is a news report and footage shown Wednesday of an eight-year-old boy who lost both legs in a suspected cluster bomb attack in Syria.
Nour, from Douma, lost both legs on January 16 when his home was struck by a bomb.
He was playing when a bomb struck. He ran to his home but a bomb hit the yard. His injuries meant he had to have both legs amputated at the top.
His careworn father showed a pair of trainers that a charity had donated to Nour five-days before the attack. He sadly said Nour will never wear those shoes now.
Nour's father wants to bring his son home as soon as he can but he knows he won't be able to. The house is badly damaged and there is no heat.
Nour was brave throughout the interview but at times his pain was too difficult to bear. His home is ravaged. His care is far from perfect as hospital services in Syria sink under daily challenges. His life has changed course forever and his childhood has tragically ended.
The brave little lad wanted to send a message which was "show my picture to my friends and let them know about me. Show the pictures of my legs let my friends and their mothers know I am injured."
How many more Nour's are there? How many more children will die or sustain such terrible injuries?
The west has singled out some kids for help such as Ali Abbas and Malala so will they extend a special hand out to Nour and his family?
