Here is a little story of Aylan Kurdi:
The refugee crisis really heartbreaking when the boy who was three years old, Aylan Kurdi, could not survive in the open sea and drowned. The discovery of his body instantly makes the whole world shocked.
Imagine, how does such a small boy was suffering the unbearable because there is no need to attempt to survive with efforts across the vast ocean. They tried to traverse a number of areas that are very far away from his home region, the former Yugoslavia fractions, Macedonia, to Greece. The last time they were in town Gevgelija, Macedonia.
As stated by The Independent, photographs which showed Syrian refugees struggle was very draining tears. They are still very young to know savagery carried out a number of adults in the stronghold of Assad and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The atmosphere is very touching occurred when the father of Aylan seemed to bury the body of his beloved son, Friday (09/04/2015). In addition to losing Aylan Kurdi, his father also lost Galip Kurdi and his wife, Rihan.
Travel between Gevgelija-Presevo is only part of the journey they had to go. Who are not strong, can be killed and drowned. They struggled to cross the Balkan corridor, which could take them to Turkey, then pass through Greece, Macedonia, and Serbia to reach Hungary, the gate to enter the European Union.
Some have criticized the appearance of photographs of Aylan Kurdi on the front page of the world’s mass media, but much more support because of the photographs and humanitarian tragedy experienced by Aylan Kurdi expected to touch the feelings of anyone who witnessed it, so that a war that raged can be terminated immediately.
Europe is a continent where there are a number of countries intended by Aylan and family. After traveling hundreds of kilometers away via Turkey, it was time for Aylan to cross the Aegean Sea to Greece, Kos, which is two miles away.
Thousands of other souls also do the same crossings with the same risk, however the severity of the trip must be passed by the refugees.
With only wearing a glowing red shirt and shorts, it was time for Aylan and at least 20 other people to leave the coast by using two boats from Akyarlar.
But fate would, eventually the vessel sank due to overloading in which 12 souls join drowned, including five children. Aylan and his brother Galip (5), and their mother, Rihan (35) never set foot in Europe.
