Excerpt:

In this Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012 file photo, a Syrian girl who fled with her family from the violence in their village carries a baby seat over her head at a camp in the Syrian village of Atmeh, near the Turkish border with Syria.  / AP Photo/ Khalil Hamra, File ATMEH, Syria Most of the displaced people in the tent camp rising near this village on the Syrian-Turkish border are children. All have fled the violence of Syria’s civil war farther south. Many have seen violence themselves. Some have lost relatives, and most have trouble sleeping and panic when they hear loud noises or airplanes, their parents say. Fighting between the forces of President Bashar Assad and rebels seeking to topple him has sent hundreds of thousands Syrians streaming into neighboring countries.
