Children of war in Syria speak of hopes for tomorrow, as they the reflect on the last four years their homes have been devastated from a civil war. In video obtained by Reuters, these brothers in Aleppo who lost their father in the fighting say all they want is to make him proud. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) SYRIAN CHILD, MOHAMMED, SAYING: "I ask God to be the best in the second year at school and to make my father, who is in paradise, happy for me and my brothers." (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) SYRIAN CHILD, FAISAL, SAYING: "The revolution is now at its fourth year and father was made a martyr last year. We live in injustice. I ask God to send all the good people and I ask God to end Bashar al-Assad's life, and hopefully he dies and we can relax, and we can live a good life without killings or injustice." They play soccer in a neighborhood that lies in rubble from a war torn past, as they carry on with their daily lives -- now victims of a conflict that has left at least 200,000 dead and shattered many more lives.
