The 15th of March, 2015, marked the fourth anniversary of the Syrian conflict. Monstrosities that have occurred since the beginning of the conflict were unimaginable, and thought to be halted by those who claimed all along that this was unacceptable and must be stopped. They have gone on, however, increasingly unnoticed and in the background of other conflicts. As the war has moved on to Iraq and yonder, we watch from afar, startled by the horror flooding many innocent civilians. Distracted by the horror of ISIS, we forget that beheadings are still a daily occurrence on Syrian ground. The conflict floats on, unabated.
