The boy was part of a group of 11 Syrians who drowned off the coastal town of Bodrum in Turkey after an apparent failed attempt to flee the war ravaged country

There are too many people fleeing conflict areas, in search for a new home, safety and security. This massive migration of human beings, “yes they are human beings” and not just migrants, where we do let them go, and where do they go?

How are “we” the WORLD to care for these people? There are so many, an entire section of the world has been vacated because of terrorism, and all their people are on the seas, on the trains, all over Europe, they are trying to find home.

They say we need to stop the conflict ! But how do we do that ? We are well over the tipping point on trying to do something to stop it. But the world has failed in its attempt to stop them.

Now all these people are on the move, trying to get somewhere, anywhere, than where they started at. The world needs a response. A GOOD response.

We need to step up as community and do something now.

They are human beings, let us not forget that.

The promises of Canadian Politicians are not good enough, too little, too late.

The world needs to come together to find a viable solution to this human crisis.
