Thank you for the lovely, encouraging comments. It truly is an inspiration to know people seek answers to questions that many are afraid to ask, or do not know whom to ask when it comes to the refugee situation in the middle east, Africa, and other war-torn countries. I have dedicated this blog, and my time, to offer a platform that is non-biased, because when politics and religion are causing children, women, and men to suffer, does it really matter who is right or wrong?

Mind you, I am quite opinionated when news involves North American politics and human rights.

This blog is about humanity. It is about sharing knowledge in order to bring awareness to a tragic situation occurring on the other side of the world; the suffering of over 10 million refugees is a global concern.

I do hope that my readers will feel inspired to open their hearts and minds; not dwell on the religious factions, the country politics, and turn a blind eye. I believe, strongly, that those of us fortunate to have been born, or living in privileged society accept responsibility, step up and take action. I am a Canadian, whom married an American, and raised my children in the United States, as well having traveled extensively for both work and pleasure, together have given me the ability to accept cultures, beliefs, and lifestyle unfamiliar to my own.

With my blog, and utilizing other social media platforms, my goal is to bring to light the tragedy that is destroying the lives of our future, because every child is our future, no matter where they were born or raised. Reaching out to the children is paramount to minimizing the constant struggle between violent factions, I believe, it will be the children that make the needed changes, if they are given the same opportunities we have, to educate and understand that there is more to life than mere survival. If any of my words, or the articles I share can inspire even one person to aid the refugees in any way, then I have succeeded in helping bring awareness to refugees.

Please remember, the children did not choose to become orphaned refugees, nor have the women, and even men who are fleeing their homes, with their family, in an attempt to stay alive. I always say to myself, imagine if I was a refugee, fleeing with my children, trying to feed and shelter them, how blessed and grateful I would be, if even one person reached out to me. If we join together, we can make a difference, and history has shown us, that is the only way to end the suffering of millions; children, women, young men all carry a future, and potential that deserves acknowledgment, respect and nurturing.

Johnson is the "Out" campaign's best-known leader and Trump has said Britain would be "better off without" the EU, which he has blamed for Europe's migration crisis.
