I am tired. Tired of hateful Facebook comments, of articles and TV shows discussing "Threats to our culture" or the inability of a country as rich as Germany to take care of the people who need it so desperately. I am tired about discussions about something that should be obvious: help for those in need from those who have more than enough to give. I am tired of the idiotic idea that people come to Europe in tiny boats facing the huge chance of death for a couple of Euros.
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land
no one burns their palms
no one spends days and nights in the stomach of a truck
feeding on newspaper unless the miles travelled
means something more than journey.
no one crawls under fences
no one wants to be beaten
