Heya, newies. I’ve been hanging out and having some really thoughtful discussions this week, and I’ve been LOVING it.
I’d like to leave for the weekend knowing your opinion on one issue I’m still struggling with. It’s a hot topic in the news this week, and I’m really interested to hear everyone’s perspective.
The Refugee Crisis
So here’s a wrap-up of what is happening.
With the release of some controversial images, and another ship capsizing in the Mediterranean, Europe and the rest of the world has seen the real gravity of the refugee crisis. Thousands of refugees from Syria (and other parts of the middle east) are looking for safety in Europe, and even as the migration is often dangerous and sometimes deadly, they often arrive in Europe and are turned away.
Leaders of the European Union are stepping up and creating plans to handle all of the 160,000 migrants and refugees. Some countries are all about it, namely Italy and Greece who have economic problems. But countries like Hungary and the Czech Republic are a bit overwhelmed already.
What are your thoughts on this issue? Should Europe willingly open their doors to thousands of people?
What if they are countries that are struggling themselves? Can they help and handle the thousands of people knocking on their doors?
