Tidal waves. An overcrowded, wet rubber raft clinging to your backside waiting for one jab to tear it. The scared, yet somewhat hopeful nature of those around you. The feeling of wanting to be free more than you want to. These all sound like dreams you once had, or unfamiliar feelings, right? These aforesaid feelings are all things that a common North African Refugee feels. Maybe not on a normal day, but the migration to a new country is the hardest part– especially when you don’t have your loved ones around you. On Monday October 3rd, and Tuesday the 4th, over ten thousand African refugees were rescued while attempting the dangerous trip across the Mediterranean sea into Italy. The saddest part, however, may be the fact that most didn’t survive. It has been reported that it took about 48 hours to rescue those ten thousand people, and 24 hours to rescue about six thousand people from another accident that happened earlier last month. So when will tragedies such as these come to an end? It’s hard to say with the cost of supplies, equipment and housing for each refugee on the incline. However, there are many activist groups, as well as humanitarian ones that are helping the case. And, although this is just the start of the problem, people are becoming more informed than they were just a short while ago, which shows how powerful one message can be.
