The blank and haunting gaze of the "boy in the ambulance" rescued from the rubble in Aleppo turned the world's eyes to the besieged city — although Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson appeared not to have heard of it. The image of Omran Daqneesh, whose bloodied and dust-caked face was captured on camera, is a heart-wrenching reminder of the ceaseless civil war in Syria and the toll it has taken on the country's children. While the world inevitably moves on, Omran and millions like him remain prisoners of a horror without end.
