These two beautiful boys are no more. They drowned fleeing syria with their mom hoping to reach canada.
Got up early this morning and browsing news over a cup of coffee only to see this. As millions of images of death and attrocities from Iran to Syria and Sierra Leon to Congo and Sudan has made us numb and indifferent, it is hard to avoid the stark reality that Humanity is on a fast slope of decline. I took a look at my son and am having a hard time holding my tears and fear of a grim future back. As much as most of us are far better off than anything like these refugees would have to deal with, decency of some people ( http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/01/icelanders-call-on-government-to-take-in-more-syrian-refugees ) and despite relative assurances of a decent material future for those of us in better parts of the world; the world our children will inherit seems increasingly inhuman and bleak.
