CNN's Kate Bolduan is usually a tough, fair reporter. But today, the image of a 5-year old child named Omran caused her to break down on the air.

“What strikes me is we shed tears, but there are no tears here,” she observed as her voice cracked. “He doesn’t cry once. That little boy is in total shock. He’s stunned, inside his home one moment and the next, lost in the fury and the flurry of war and chaos.”

After sharing how many thousands have died in Aleppo, Syria, alone, she closed with, “This is Omran. He’s alive. We wanted you to know.”

The inhumanity of man is just stunning.
