A little while ago a news story caught my attention. I was really moved by it, and I felt an urge within me to do something with it, so I decided to write a song about it which I presented on my YouTube channel.
The story is about a Syrian gentleman. His name is Alex Assali.
Because of the terrible war that’s been going on in his home country he had to flee because his life was in danger, leaving everything and everyone behind.
After being on the run for a while he finally made his way to Germany. People in Germany had enough love in their hearts to take him in, and because he had practically nothing but the close he was wearing, he was given a little allowance to buy some food for himself.
What he did next really touched me very deeply.
Even though he had almost nothing, he started to use a very large portion of that very little allowance that he got, and he used it to cook food; traditional Syrian food. And as a thank you to the people of Germany for providing him with a safe haven every Saturday he started handing out his own made meals to the homeless of Berlin.
This was a great demonstration of love. It inspired me to write a, which I named “feel the love”
