Franklin Graham Wrote THIS Heartfelt Open Letter To President Obama

Franklin Graham is not afraid to tell the truth as he sees it.  In recent months, he has made bold statements on his Facebook page on everything from the Supreme Court's ruling on marriage to Trump's statements about Kim Davis.

Now he is urging President Obama to take action for Syrian refugees in his latest Facebook post he says:

“Dear Mr. President,

With nearly 40 years of experience in international relief work, assisting refugees and displaced people from Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, I would like to add my voice to those supporting the establishment of safe zones in Syria.  This would allow Syrians fleeing from areas of conflict inside the country to find safety, food, medicine, and shelter, and stay within their borders, nearer their homes, until a political and military settlement has been reached.  Most refugees that I have worked with over the years desire to eventually return home.  As we have all seen, fleeing to another country adds great risk to their lives and exposes the refugees to exploitation by unscrupulous people who deal in human trafficking.

Establishing safe zones would require partnership with and military assistance from our allies in Europe and the Middle East, and it would require a considerable commitment from the United States.  Without action I believe this crisis will only escalate.  Europe and the United States will be unable to handle the flood of people; and the long-term implications are great with the possibility of ISIS infiltrating the refugees and bringing their terrorist activities onto our shores.  It is more effective, more economical, and safer to work with our partners and deal with the problem there.

Mr. President, I ask you to lead the way in an alliance to provide safe zones inside Syria’s borders.  I pray that God will give you his wisdom as your decisions will affect the lives of so many.  God bless you.

Sincerely,

Franklin Graham"

People are applauding Graham's letter, saying it "makes sense" and is "compassionate."  But many fear it will never make it to President Obama.

What do you think of Graham's suggestion?  Do you hope President Obama hears and listens?
