On August 12, 2014, a helicopter team bringing food and supplies, rescued handfuls of the Yazidi people
trapped on Mount Sinjar, in the Iraqi Kurdistan mountain range, Sinjar. Those who could, had fled for
their lives from their home to the mountain. There for days, they were in desperation conditions in
heat, without food and water, some were dying and some already had. Then appears a helicopter with
military throwing boxes of supplies and much needed food and water closeby. The helicopter landed
only a few short seconds, but long enough for a few Yazidi to make it aboard.
Tom’s tribute to the Yazidi people that day “Chariots From Heaven” was a result of the plight of these
desparate people. What did it feel like to hear the choppers? To run and hope to be one to make it
aboard? To leave those on the mountain behind not knowing if they would be seen again? and to flee
even further from the town called home where more of their family and friends were left. Tom’s rush
of words came quickly. Soon this tribute was shared among those effected by this emotional event.
