While many of us were busy criticizing our lives, there was this heartbreakingly beautiful video of a father-daughter went viral. The video captures the heart-warming spirit of heroic parents, who strive hard to protect their kids from this ugly world.
As we know Idlib, in north-west Syria, has been the target of continuous bombing since the past few weeks. So far 21 civilians have been killed by the strikes carried out by the Syrian Air Force and their Russian allies as reported by The Guardian.
In the middle of such bombing, a father created a “laughing game” for his daughter to prevent her from getting scared. As per News 18, this father taught his 4-year-old daughter to play the game by laughing every time a bomb dropped.
This video of the father-daughter duo was shared by a journalist on Twitter who wrote, “What a sad world.”
Have a look at the video here:

It is heartbreaking to believe how some humans driven by their lust for power have wrecked houses of so many innocent families. At IFORHER, we pray for the people of Syria and hope the war would end soon. And these families could soon live a life they deserve.
