NOV. 10-Bloggers Unite For Refugees

Trying to make the world a better place, thousands of bloggers have united this day for raising awareness for refugees…

…people who have no country to call home and the 40 million more who have been displaced because of war and natural disasters…

…”our analysis indicates that the treatment of refugees is usually based on geopolitical concerns and, possibly more importantly,on the perceived kinship between the refugees and the host communities. When refugees and their hosts look
the same, speak the same language, share the same religion, or common cultural heritage, the hosts treat them more humanely
and allow them to exercise more of their rights. When the refugees are historical enemies, have different racial characteristics, worship a different God, or come from very far away, the treatment becomes less and less humane. Perhaps
this was understandable in years past, when foreigners were unusual. In today’s shrinking world, where our very survival is dependent on our recognition of our common humanity, this behavior is anachronistic and unacceptable. As
history has shown us time and again, today’s host may be tomorrow’s refugee. There is only one lesson to be taken from this—we ought to treat refugees as we ourselves would want to be treated…”

Hagamos de este mundo un lugar mejor!

…por favor, trate a los refugiados como a usted le gustaría ser tratado!

Its sad, because there are a lot of refugees living in the poorest conditions.
Just knowing this makes me very sad.
One can always help through some organizations around the world, that provide food and health care to these poor people.
I wish people could help more...
