What would it be like if the U.S. was war torn like Syria? A new video by international NGO Save the Children imagines just that, through the eyes of a young girl:

Reading can be such a solitary, lonely activity, but sometimes, when a book strikes me at the right moment, in the right place, I feel more connected to humanity than at any other time in my life.

That’s what reading feels like, and it makes me less afraid.
