A refugee is a person that needs help. Over all definitions, he needs help. He had an awful life, full of danger, persecutions or lived his life surrounded by war and bombs.
What would a normal person do if his existence was daily threatened? I’m asking this question because the real problem is one of mentality. All this people rejecting refugees get only half of the situation. They see the refugees at their borders, but do not see their critical situation from their country. It’s in human nature to defend, but still the refugees’ escape is considered unfair. Moreover, if the refugees make it somehow to the adoptive countries, they are treated ‘3rd world’ like. Our mentality is that refugees should be grateful for a poor camp and some food. We can’t put ourselves in their situation, we don’t want to understand the war and ISIS attacks are not their fault and we don’t recognize we’d leave our countries as well in their situation.
I guess the best is to raise awareness, because this solves the biggest problem.
Change have been in human history since forever. It is how war and destruction were shaped. It is how crisis and anarchy can vanish. Cities rising sky-high and mountains turning to dust. Change is in our nature, but with it, there are repercussions that we must accept. One of them is the problem of refugees. Who are refugees? People. People that must leave their countries because of fear for their own lives. Fear because of our need to change something. Of course, you’ll say that you’re not involved in that war. You, the normal person watching the wars on TV at night from your confortable bed. But you are part of this awesome race we call human, ain’t you?
Alright, let’s continue with the true problem here. One of the biggest repercussions are refugees. Those are people that took all the ash from our burning fire of evolution. They were hit by wars, discrimination and persecution, because in our rush to change we did pay attention only to ourselves. And because we, as human race, are proving the evolution that comes with change so much, it is also our duty to support those who had to accept it on their own skin, flesh and bones, sometimes literally.
We must help our brothers. I’m not asking you to take them home and treat them like you treat your own children or parents, but to accept and help them as good as you can. They paid a price for this change that affects us all, so that we can learn and evolve.
Only he, who stops being better, stops being good and we want to get better, as individuals and as a whole.
In my view, the measures taken regarding refugees should be more human. EU could accommodate more people. Emotionally, if we empathize with them, we would act differently. Refugees are people who go through a very complex situation and they need to be helped to rebuild their lives because of the critical situation they’re forced to go through. I add that the media and politics play a very important role. That is why there should be more campaign with real cases to raise public awareness.
In my opinion the refugees are people that left their homes and their lives because of the war that is happening in some regions in this world. Most of them try to go to countries that have good economy and not poor countries, also the people need help and the government from other countries can’t help them too much, so help them we have to get our help involved instead of accusing them for bad things.
it’s a hard feeling when u imagine that you also can be a refugee, so how do you feel ?
I really want not to feel any difference between me and the refugees, and unfortunately nowadays people are scared and they hate refugees, they don’t understand that they are people like us and they really didn’t want to have them in their countries. If one day all u have around is bombs and ruins I would have not stayed there any longer. European people don’t understand that for the refugees coming to us is the only chance to live and don’t want to hurt us. There are migrants that come to your country possibly everyday but if we talk about refugees what is so different? In my opinion even if there are some bad people in the refugees camps, that doesn’t mean that everyone of them has bad intentions and something like that in conclusion we should put our selves in their situation and then to discriminate them and have wrong ideas. We should treat them like normal human beings and help them with everything they need.
In my opinion refugees need a huge help in every country because no one can imagine what they have gone through.
There are people as everyone of us but they just had a bad luck that his kind of thing happened to them and we are so blessed that we didn’t have to face such a horrible situations as loosing family members, loved ones, with a daily desperate of not seeing them again.
Everyone should think about this with empathy and try to do their best to help them and improve their life.
In our country we don’t go in to the details about the task, we don’t have enough personal experiences but in my opinion is important to be informed . I don’t think our economy is strong enough to manage with big amount of foreign people, but I try to look at refugees more personally.
They are living persons with their own life stories, own feelings and needs. Not everybody of them deserves it but we should help them if its in one’s level best. We don’t know when we will need help like this.
