I can’t stop thinking about Aylan Kurdi and the collective horror his cold image of being washed ashore generates .We as a human being fail when we see such tragic picture of a 3 year old boy washed away .But he is not alone ,neither our outrage on facebook and twitter helping. Thousands are making the journey from Turkey to Greece’s easternmost islands each day. The majority are Syrians fleeing the war in their homeland. Others are from Afghanistan or Iraq. So far this year, the number of them crossing the Mediterranean has exceeded 300,000, with 200,000 landing in Greece, the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR said.
Aylan is not alone in this plight The number of people uprooted from their homes by war and persecution in 2014 was larger than in any year The rapidly escalating figures reflect a world of renewed conflict, with wars in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe driving families and individuals from their homes in desperate flights for safety. But the systems for managing those flows are breaking down, with countries and aid agencies unable to handle the strain as an average of nearly 45,000 people a day join the ranks of those either on the move or stranded far from home.
Let me take you through heart wrenching images of refugee crisis and why we need to correct this ,why we need to ensure these millions of refugees a simple right – Right to Live

We are sorry Aylan , we failed you and we will continue failing million of children because a millitary might is more important than a lost childhood
Keep Smiling there above......Believe me you are at a better place.
