One Year On

I make no excuse for showing these two iconic photographs again. It is a year since the body of Alan Kurdi was washed up on a Turkish beach and just a few weeks since we saw the horrific effects of war on Omran Daqneesh. Two children from many thousands. Regardless of religion, location or the causes, children are suffering terribly and, as we would say to any abused child, – “it is not your fault”, it is not the fault of children that they find themselves in critical and horrific circumstances. Our failure, as a world, to care for and show compassion to our children will not only allow the suffering to continue but the future will inevitably be blighted for the next generation.
