**Correction fron Lisa Thompson: While discussing the topic of IDPs (internally displaced persons), I made reference to Syria and the refugee crisis (refugees being those who have fled the country). Unfortunately, I neglected to loop in the fact that there 6.5 million IDPs in Syria—persons who have fled their former homes due to the ongoing civil war to seek sanctuary elsewhere within Syria—making them internally displaced persons.
