"Home" by Warsan Shire

"Home" by Warsan Shire is your must read of the day. It offers a powerful message in the wake of the widely-publicized photo of 3-year old Aylan Kurdi's body, washed upon the shores of Turkey.

Shire writes:

you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land

This may become required reading for my asylum classes.
