Although my blog is largely based on beauty and other such fun things and I try not to be political, I see human rights as something completely apart from politics. I know many people disagree with allowing refugees into their borders, or try to paint them as terrorists or that they're all in ISIS (they're running from ISIS, FYI), but I can't stand by and allow my readers to be uninformed on ways they can help if they so desire. As humans, let's make our time on this crazy whirling planet a little more tolerable and not let people suffer needlessly.
If you're a bit confused on the situation, here are some great reads/watches:

But there are things we can do if we all gather together and maybe relieve their suffering a little bit. And we can all pressure our governments to do more in our own countries.
