The Continuing Tribulations of an Exodus to Peace

The tear-jerking lifeless body of a baby has washed up onto a beach in Turkey. The body of a man is discovered along the south coast of the Greek Isle, Kalolimnos. In 24-hours, Greece has rescued 1,058 displaced people in 28 locations on the Aegean Sea. And in Hungary, Viktor Orban's authorities continue to impede the manifested travel of refugees hoping to reach Germany.

These are the daily struggles and tragedies of thousands of displaced people forced to leave their homes because of war and conflict only to encounter more surmounting events along the trek to freedom and solace.

As reported by the Associated Press(AP) earlier today, the deaths of a baby and a man, both trying to find peace away from war, is indicative of the ongoing tribulations of an exodus to peace by many displaced by Bashar Assad's war in Syria.

Although Germany has expressed the intent to take in as many 800,000 of the asylum seekers, other European nations appear hesitant to share the burden of the increasing refugee population at the continent's door. While some British conservatives claim that asylum seekers should stay within the countries into which they arrived in Europe, the sheer geography of Europe and the scale of refugee numbers, have rendered such a notion as ludicrous.

When European Union(EU) nations hold a summit on the refugee crisis later this month, it is hoped that a better formula to housing the influx of asylum seekers could be found. Tenets of the contract of the EU that calls for a free movement of people between states will be brought to discussion. And whatever is finalized regarding the migrants, one thing will remain constant: thousands of war and conflict wary people are asking Europe to uphold the high ideals of humanity.
