This is not a chapter but something I believe is important:

I am ashamed to live in a country which has benefited so much from the influx of new people, now and throughout history, yet is not doing its fair share to help people fleeing a war which our own government's actions and inactions helped fuel.

I know I'm probably preaching to the converted here, but please do what ever you can on a personal level, and put pressure on your leaders to do the same: help these people. Not with bombs but with food, shelter, a home, safe passage. Hope.

Are we really so callous that we would rather children drown in the sea than share "our" patch of the planet with them?
