The Perils of Indifference
Zat Rana

I believe we’re again at a moment in history when the world is asking us to show who we really are. As conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa rage on, we again choose to focus on the war, not the victims. Millions of refugees are pounding at our door, but we refuse to help them because we think they might be terrorists, or because they might damage the economy. We turn away and cry about taking care of our own. But I believe this will go down in history as one of our most shameful episodes. Sadly, we forget refugees are “our own” too, or aren’t we all a part of the human race?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
