My name is Ed Kassig and this is my wife Paula. I am a schoolteacher and my wife is a nurse who works with refugees.
Our son is Abdul-Rahman, formerly known as Peter. He disappeared on Oct. 1 of last year, near Raja, Syria. At an early age, our son was inspired by his grandfather to do humanitarian work. When he saw the suffering of the Syrian people, he went to Turkey and founded an organization to provide aid and assistance. He helped train 150 civilians in skills needed to provide medical aid to the people of Syria.
His organization gave food, cooking supplies, clothing, and medicine to those in need. He grew to love and admire the Syrian people and felt at home there. Our son’s journey culminated in him embracing Islam. Sadly, he was taken captive and is not free to continue his life’s work serving the people of the region.
The driving force in our family has always been to serve others. Our son comes from two long lines of teachers and humanitarian workers. Our family deplores all human suffering and a loss of innocent life. No matter who is responsible, we respond by trying to provide aid and assistance. Our son was living his life according to that same humanitarian call when he was taken captive.
We know that the Syrians are suffering. We also believe violence is not the solution to the problems that trouble us all. There is so much that is beyond our control. We’ve asked our government to change its actions, but like our son, we have no more control over the U.S government than you have over the breaking of dawn.
We implore his captors to show mercy and use his power to let our son go.

Dear son, we hope that you will see this message from me and your father. We are so very proud of you and the work that you have done to bring humanitarian aid to the Syrian people.
We were grateful and relieved to have received your messages earlier this year. We know you were very worried about your friend who was taken with you. He was released, and is well.
Please know that we are all praying for you and your safe return.
Most of all know that we love you, and our hearts ache for you to be granted your freedom so we can hug you again and then set you free to continue the life you have chosen – the life of service to those in greatest need. We implore those who are holding you to show mercy, and use their power to let you go.
