The Migrant Tragedy

I was watching the news last night about the desperate flow of migrants coming from Africa and Middle East into Europe. Did you know: More than 300,000 migrants have risked their lives trying to cross the Mediterranean to Europe so far this year?

Approx. 200,000 people have landed in Greece since January this year, while another 110,000 made it to Italy.

Approx.  2,500 desperate migrants have drowned in the Mediterranean so far this year trying to make the crossing into Europe

There has also been numerous other incidences where migrants have died tragically making their journey toward a better life.

I saw small children and their parents walking along railway tracks, sneaking under razor wire fences, making runs across borders, as they desperately seek a ‘better life’ .

The only possessions they have are what they can carry and some carry nothing more than the clothes they wear. I could see and feel the fear written over their small faces, how could these children understand or even comprehend what is happening to them when their parents couldn’t.

In some European countries they are now building fences to keep migrants out, some EU countries are arguing about how many migrants they should accept, the challenges are dividing countries, political parties and individuals, everyone has a view, an opinion, yet the migrants keep coming.

 So, what are we doing about it?

Have we not all caused it?

Is it not a collective responsibility?

Have we not allowed this to happen?

Don’t we vote our governments in to power?

Don’t we let them abuse this power?

Why does it appear no one is trying to get to the root cause?

I asked myself all these questions and many more. I’m not here to judge anyone, I merely point out the facts and ask myself these questions and seek answers to what I can do and how I can help.

Some migrants started their journey thousands of miles away; I start mine from here, where do you start yours???
