I would love to fix the world. Let no child be born to die. Let no human being suffer. Sometimes the scale of destruction in the world can feel so overwhelming we can wonder what a difference our actions can possibly make.
Every day we are hit with another heart-breaking glimpse into the horror of the unfolding global refugee crisis. Photographs and footage of Aylan Kurdi, a Kurdish-Syrian three-year old who drowned with other members of his family as they tried to reach safety in Europe, tear at our souls.
The boat the family had boarded was carrying them from war torn Syria bound for the Greek island of Kos. Sadly, their journey did not end in jubilation that they had fled to safety but has ended in a tragedy that has touched the hearts of many.
