I need to voice my thoughts, watching this is troubling me , as it is so many other's...I need to say something..... my mind goes to what can be done... we have so many Billionaire's on this planet we call earth and right now they are probably sitting back in their expensive leather chairs watching the news on their huge smart TVs in their huge houses, with their butlers and servants and a garage full of expensive automobiles and toys..and the only thing these refugees want is a chance to live..the only other choice they have is death....which would you choose????..makes me sick to see so many people suffering and yet others don't know what they have sit back and count their money and wont help...where are the humanitarian efforts?? Surely they can help???? or do we only bring out help for natural catastrophes? do we need an earthquake or tsunami to provide help for these people?....isn't there anyone who can give them.some water? some food? .a blanket to keep them warm at night?...how on earth have we become so shallow and uncaring..we are closing borders, telling them to go back? back to where? another country that wont let them in? back to die in their own country? we can send people to outer space, we can mass produce smart TV'S and Computers, state of the art vehicles, homes.and we cant find a safe place for these people to call home?? everyone is entitled to feel safe, why are we turning into barbarians and dealing with situations like this as they would?.. it is so sad a scene like this.. has become just another reality series on TV. As I watch from my computer and read the stories of the turmoil on my computer....I would like to say ,,,,I am proud of my homeland Greece, who did not turn these people back, but is helping feed them, and carry them safely to the mainland , as a country and a nation, we are suffering, we have almost lost everything.... we are on our knees trying to survive, and yet we find what little we can to help these people feel safe, that is what we call in Greece PHILOTIMO.....Philotimo (also spelled filotimo; Greek: φιλότιμο) is a Greek noun translating to "love of honor". I am proud to call my self Greek , proud to be a loving human being, I only wish more countries and humans knew the meaning of that word. God bless and keep all those people safe and may they find some peace.
