I was looking at news stories on Syria on the Web....my heart is also broken. How sad. The children...oh, those poor, poor children. Just do a search on "children in Syria" and you will be floored by how many of them are dying.
May the Lord have mercy upon all those involved in conflict.
Have mercy on those who fight to survive, have mercy upon the Syrian Church, soften the hearts of those who wish to harm others.
...simply....Lord, have mercy.
