On the Preventable Deadly End for Many in Search of Solace - a Home

Malaysian authorities earlier today discovered a series of graves at 17 abandoned camps used by human traffickers to stow away Rohingya people refugees. 

While the total number of corpses contained in the graves is yet to be determined, reports indicated that each grave could contain from one to four bodies. Earlier this month, the Associated Press(AP) reported, Malaysian authorities also unearthed another 30 large graves at similar abandoned human trafficking sites that contained hundreds of bodies near the Thai border. Some 100 corpses were found in one mass grave. Also this month, Thai authorities unearthed dozens of bodies in shallow graves from abandoned human trafficking sites on the Thai side of the border with Malaysia. Most of the dead, if not all, are believed to be Rohingya people refugees.

Hence, the pages of the history of this modern civilized era will catalog these preventable deaths of people merely seeking a home, as a testament  of our paradoxical age. For as many free people and a few privilege elite scurry about their accepted normal lives of plenty, comfort, luxury and waste; across a body of water, across a land border: many unfortunate people are dying under non humane conditions because many people have turned their backs upon them in their greatest hour of need on a quest for a home - a land upon which to lay their heads and within which to raise their children - common privileges many have never had to consider.

But the Rohingya and other displaced people should not have to die at hands of human traffickers nor on perilous journeys in search of solace. The International organizations and World Powers, entrusted with the faith to protect the small, the meek, the lowly, the poor, the voiceless and the stateless, must do more to prevent such humanitarian crises. 

For many years, the conditions repressing the Rohingya people in Myanmar have been know. For four years Bashar al Assad has been able to perpetrate a repressive war in Syria. Conditions for many in Bangladesh have gotten worse. Ukraine's aspirations are still stifled. Economic conditions in Northern Africa continue to deteriorate. In Eastern and Central Europe, nervous governments wonder of possible agitations that could push their countries into crisis tomorrow. Yet, organizations like the United Nations(UN), stand apparently impotent to prevent and to solve crises.

Therefore, in lieu of adequate international prevention and solution to crises, the affected people of nations must undertake their own full onus to protect and to safeguard themselves within their societies by whatever means necessary. It is for the service and for the protection of the people that communities exist. And any society that fails to protect any sect or class within that society - is a society in need of being put right. And the task to setting societies right rests with the people - all the people.
