Last night I attended a panel discussion on the siege of East Aleppo 
that left me depressed and angry, especially as its participants spelled 
out the terrible beating that hospitals are taking. The event started 
with a video narrated by Dr. Hatem who is the Director of the 
Independent Doctor’s Association’s Children’s Hospital. It is not easy 
to look at the footage of wounded children whose only offense was being 
forced to live in a city that Assad deemed filled with terrorists. It 
gave me the same sinking feeling I used to get when I worked at the 
Memorial Sloan Kettering cancer hospital in the 1980s. When you see a 
3-year old kid walking around with a medication bag attached to his or 
her arm, you wonder how anybody can believe in god. After watching this 
video about Russian and Baathist atrocities, you can easily end up 
believing in the devil.
