BIRMINGHAM (WWJ) – A rally of about 100 people supporting the U.S. taking action in Syria took shape Friday evening in Birmingham.

Rosanna Harris is from Syria and took part in the gathering telling WWJ’s Stephanie Davis that she worries daily about her family in the city of Hamas.

Syria Protest Bham 2 (SDavis)“Every morning I wonder what that day is going to bring,” she said.”What kind of news it’s going to bring and actually I look through my day and I say is today is the day that I’m going to lose all my family? What is going to happen?”

She wonders how she will cope with such possibilites.

Harris’ mother and father just arrived to metro Detroit from Syria afraid for their lives.

She and others wanted to take a stand in support of President Obama and Congress intervening in the wake of possible chemical weapons use in Syria.

Many people in the gathering say they have family or friends that have been personally affected by the Assad regime.
