JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Dozens of Syrians from the First Coast are back from an anti-war rally in Washington D.C.
George Samara is one of the people that made the trip. He said it was important for the group to go to make sure their voices were heard. He said they wanted to deliver an important message.
"To go over there and tell them don't kill our family, that's all," said Samara.
The group drove 13 hours to Washington and protested for 7 hours before starting the trip home.
"They are heroes for going in defense of their families in Syria," he said.
Samara said he's confident Congress heard their message.
"We feel like their received it instantly, and are working on [resolving the conflict in] the diplomatic way," he said.
