Displaced people, asylum seekers, migrants, refugees - all classes of persons and nationalities, who are in search of assistance and of protection because their home countries have failed in protecting them.
Today is World Refugee Day and from Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Myanmar and elsewhere, the plight of millions of the world's people, who are in need of assistance and protection from persecution, conflict and hardships, has become very familiar and well documented.
From the encampments of Greece, to the Mediterranean Sea, to the sands of Iraq and of Syria, world charities are hard at work delivering a seemingly perpetual service against human displacement and suffering. Yet, refugees are threatened with prevention of entry into the lands to which they have fled for solace because of various regional and national policies in place to keep them out.
However, the displaced people, asylum seekers, migrants and refugees, are the charges of humanity and civil. Modern societies must owe up to the responsibility and onus to help. Therefore on this day and henceforth, humanitarian nations should accommodate the comfort of fleeing minors, women and able bodied persons.
Recent European Union(EU)policies and deals adversely effecting migrants and American Republican opposition to the granting of relief to "Dreamers", should give way to true humanitarian assistance to the world's people. Global stability is directly related to curbing human displacement.
People are refugees - refugees are people, of blood and of flesh of the same as those who are settled and well. The same comfort enjoyed by those privileged must be extended to those deserving and needing. This World refugee Day could become a very good point to reboot and to better worldwide recognition and respect of all displaced people.
