It's 2018, a time where we currently live in the most 'peaceful' era in human existence, yet it doesn't feel like it... We are currently as of 2014, there were over 60 million people forcibly displaced from their homes. If we could calculate that in a census number for a country, it would be the 24th largest population in the world.
One out of every 122 people on this planet is either a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum according to the United Nations refugee agency.
Most of the people in refugee status come from Syria, but lets remember that this statistic was taken in 2014. Now imagine 2015 to the present where the Syrian Civil War has seen interventions from the United States, Turkey, and Russia. Imagine what its like to be an Afghan where the reinsurgent Taliban and NATO campaign has caused more Afghans to flee their country. Look at other places such as Mali, Burundi, Somalia, Yemen, and Myanmar to say a few.
When do we say enough is enough? When do we as a human race help out our fellow men, women, and children?
With a refugee crisis that has overwhelmed some parts of the world, when will other regions step up? Pictured is a child refugee clinging to a fence in a run down camp in which that child may never know what its like to go back to their home, since it was devastated by war, or know what its like to live a better life as certain governments in advanced nations refuse to take them in.
