Syrian Activists Live Stream Their Revolution

Mainstream journalists are barred from entering Homs, so a team of activists decided to record the offensive themselves. The activists positioned their cameras atop buildings in the city. Each morning the view is blue sky, a minaret, a sea of rooftops. Then come the booms.

In one video, shot in a field hospital, Dayem walks through gruesome heaps of dead and injured people.

"We're not animals. We're human beings. We're asking for help," he says. "We're asking for your help. They're hitting us with rockets. They've not stopped with these for four hours now. They're gonna kill us all.

"If you don't help us now, they'll kill millions, and no one'll find out about us. Please, someone help us."

That same hospital itself was later hit by a rocket. The team immediately sent out a video of the aftermath.

As for Dayem, he says he hopes that once the Syrian revolution is over, he can just go back to being a regular guy.

"I just want to go back to my life listening to music, seeing my friends and forget about all this," he says.

I find it good to think about people like this before I start my day. It helps me put things like someone cutting me off in traffic or the kid who never does his homework in perspective. My life is pretty good in grand scheme of things.
