The Day Humanity Washed Ashore

Amanda has captured exactly what has been going on in hearts and minds looking at this haunting photograph. I just hope this wave of humanity that is sweeping all around us stays and proves that public memory isn’t always short.

  1. Hi Prajakta.. thanks so much for re-blogging this
    very inspirational post and this is what it
    inspired in me as the comment
    i left on the original blog..
    smiles.. and i will
    be linking her
    on my blog
    as well..:)

    i come here via Prajakta’s site..
    and i am impressed by your post
    and even more so by all your
    thoughtful and considerate
    replies to all who post here..
    And what i truly believe is that all things
    in life dark and light work toward all that IS
    and sometimes although we have a hard time
    seeing how the greaTest of tragedies mix as light
    after the fact of tragedies.. often we do see a strange
    mix of magic in dark and light.. and what i am going to
    believe to honor this young boy’s life.. will go to the extreme
    as yes.. i believe in Nature’S AKA God’s Magic.. and i will be
    brave enough to go ahead and say.. this young boy’s martyred
    death will be one of many saviors of the world like a chain
    reaction to prevent World War III.. as i dream big
    as big can be.. and how will this happen.. i will
    go ahead and feel THAT now.. INTUITIVELY
    AND say it without hesitation THAT
    THIS will be the final
    death nail
    in Trump’s
    bid for
    presidency
    in the U.S.
    and that will
    turn a tide
    away
    from
    future
    World
    War
    III..
    AS HIS MAIN
    SELLING POINT
    IS BUILDING
    A WALL
    AWAY
    FROM
    IMMIGRANTS
    CROSSING BORDERS
    FOR GREATER FREEDOM’S
    LIFE..
    and although Mexicans
    are browner than the skin
    of this young man..
    Mexico is no
    joy
    ride
    either
    for the
    poor and
    helpless there
    as well.. and they
    work harder mostly
    than anyone here
    as they appreciate
    FREEDOM’S LIFE
    OH SO WELL AS FREE..

    But anyway.. bottom line..

    Thank you.. for this
    very inspirational
    post to make
    CHANGE
    a reality
    by NOT
    keeping
    QUIET..:)

  2. For the first time since I started reading your blog, I find myself not in complete agreement with you. I think I’d better post the link to something I’ve read that encapsulated my feelings about this whole “trending picture of a dead child” which I found awful in more ways than the obvious one :http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse/2015/09/sharing-a-photo-of-the-dead-syrian-child-isnt-compassionate-its-narcissistic/
