The Image of the Refugee Crisis
An image of Aylan al-Kurdi, a three-year-old boy who drowned and washed up on a beach in Turkey, has spread around the world. He has become the image for the refugee crisis, a young child attempting to escape from Syrian war and destruction. Aylan was one of more than 2,500 who were killed by the Mediterranean this year in search of a safe home in Europe.
Do you think advanced nations are helping the refugee crisis? How does this image bring home the true issue?

Exactly @virginvingler. I think some citizen see it as not their problem, but when people are suffering that much...I think it’s our responsibility to reach out.
Seeing the photos of the drowned kids just makes me sadden while the next post I see in Facebook is people showing what they have just bake. We all need to come together.
I know that feeling @missophiestik! I actually had a productive conversation the other day about it on Facebook and felt better. But I feel so helpless in all of this...like what can I do to help?
