Many people around the globe are hurting for Omran and Bolduan is just one of them.
Omran was seen covered in blood and dust, sitting along inside the ambulance as he innocently wipes the blood off his face. He was completely in a daze and state of shock, seemingly unaware of what was happening.
A photo of Omran was posted by a Twitter user, Charlene Deveraturda @malasadasbooks, saying: "Poor baby. Near my grandson's age. I cannot imagine. The image does not leave my mind. #syrianboy #Syria #peace"
The hashtag #Syrianboy was one of the trending topics in the United States and Britain.
