An emotional and startling message comes out of one of those “second-a-day” videos that start calm and happy but ends anything but that.

It’s meant to bring home the reality of the war-torn nation of Syria and the people suffering there. It dramatically makes you think what it might be like if what was happening there were taking place where you live.

The video features a happy, healthy little girl in what looks like one of those popular videos meant to show how a child changes over time.

But it takes an explosive turn, ending with a powerful message.

The clip ends with words on the screen that say, “Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.”

The video posted by Save The Children UK Wednesday went viral quickly as it’s been viewed almost 2 million times in less than one day.
