I hope this image disturbs you and softens your heart.(Warning Graphic Image)

I have read and heard so much hatred directed toward refugees. Now 21 states say they won't take any Syrian refugees. The right, some on the left and my own wife agreed.

Then I showed her this picture. It was posted by Joe Trilppi on Twitter (@JoeTrippi) It is of a boy dead on a beach in Turkey. I asked my wife what did this boy know of war? He and his parents were trying to escape a living horror. We both cried.

If I have broken some guideline by posting this let me know and I will remove it. I hope not because I think everyone should see this.

1. Needed, I've been fighting with my husband since well forever on this and similar horrific

proof of humanity's foul ignorance, finally this morning after days of Fox News sound bites I bit out its past time to stand up for justice for those weaker and I then said in a normal voice, and I'll be damned if I let some ignorant fool claiming to possess a degree demand I live in fear, if you want to live like a coward have at it and that was the last of any more rude bites directed at me..

It is too late for that young boy, but not for the thousands still standing and crying Help Me please

How anyone could ignore such a cry is beyond my understanding and actually call such needed collateral....

Sick sick!

6. A tweet from earlier today

Paraphrase: Too bad we don't have a season appropriate story in our culture about Middle Eastern people seeking refuge and being turned away by heartless people.

10. We can't turn away from this.

My governor says the plan to take refugees in Colorado are in place and they will be welcome here. I'm proud to support Governor Hickenlooper. and will volunteer to do whatever I can to help.

11. That photo is devastating

When I first saw it I cried and cried and even now it brings tears again. That poor little guy is just another victim of the stupidity that runs rampant in the human species. I don't believe we will ever learn.
