Humanity has failed

Pin ThisEmail This
I hesitated a lot before publishing this indescribably shocking picture. But as disturbing as it may be, we don’t have the right to look away. Not anymore.

When a child drifts from a country at war to the shores of a rich continent, when his lifeless lonesome body is found on a quiet beach, we have to open our eyes. Open them very wide. And understand that we have failed. We have failed as a species. We have failed as individuals. Because it happened but never should have. Not in the 21st century. Because we let it happen. Because we didn’t do anything, or so little, to stop it.

There are no words. These were hard enough to find. So I leave it at that.

Indeed humanity has failed. Money and power (a.k.a "evil") cause war which leads to pictures like this one... God bless his soul and the soul of all innocent lives who were taken for no reason.
