I hope the people who spout moronic statements such as - "they should f*** off back to their own country" or "we don't want them over here", realise how selfish and stupid they sound when they expel this nastiness. They should see the look on the grown mans face in the picture above and feel ashamed of themselves, that man is clearly in despair and some ignorant, selfish, stupid, hate-spewing people in society, would like men like him, gripping onto his children, tears in his eyes, stopped at the border and pushed back to sea to fend for himself and his family in an unstable country, where they will most probably end up dead, if of course the journey across the sea doesn't claim their lives first. Does anyone have a heart in this day and age? I know none of the people personally in the pictures featured in this post but I would help them in any way I could. These people are refugees, desperate to get away from dangerous, harrowing and cruel situations which they sadly see themselves in, through no fault of their own I may add, due to the political instability of their home countries. Do you think if everything was perfect that they'd want to leave, of course not and you'd be an absolute liar if you said you wouldn't try to get yourself and your family, your young innocent children like Galip and Aylan, away from danger in the hopes of a new, safe life. These poor people have done nothing wrong - so why are they being treated like the scum of the Earth, criminals and like something people have trodden on? The human race baffles me completely.
So I ask, what would you do, if it was you who was in the Middle-East or some other war-torn country, where you and your family were in danger of being killed for your beliefs or for no other reason at all apart from the sport of some evil persons baying for blood? Would you not do absolutely anything to save yourself and your children? As I read this week and wholeheartedly agree with - no one puts their child into the sea when the land is safer - do you think these people have a choice? If you do you're a moron and a selfish human being. I could be a lot more blunt but this is a family friendly blog...
The world sadly is an unfair, harsh and terrifying place at times. Humanity needs to pull together during this crisis and respect their fellow human beings by helping them in any way they can. As I said above, the Earth belongs to everyone, your country is not your country, everyone should have the right to a safe place to live, a danger-free life, a happy life at that. After all, if the shoe was on the other foot and you were trying to escape terror, wouldn't you hope that someone out there would help and support you and your loved ones? How many shocking, tragic and disturbing pictures need to be shown before something is done? How many innocent children, women and men need to die before someone comes up with a solution and helps these people?
What would you do, if it was you?
