Plight of the refugees

The press coverage about refugees fleeing from countries like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan in recent weeks/months into Europe has been nothing less than astonishing. The lengths and dangers that so many have braved to make a better life for themselves and escape civil war or terror is inspirational. I’m of the opinion that if you chase your dreams, that you can accomplish anything. And these folks are proving it every day.

With so many paths being closed off, some have resorted to taking some pretty dramatic routes to include bicycling through the Arctic.

The BBC also has an interesting ‘by the numbers’ article with some infographics here that help to explain why this is such a big issue for everyone involved.

While I understand the population issues that a mass exodus can cause, I do applaud their effort to get out of a bad situation and try to start anew. Good luck guys.
