Also she didn’t want to leave the beautiful ocean; she wanted to take it home with her. It was hard to convince her that she couldn’t take it, but she finally understood. She felt happy when she knew that they were going to return home, but kind of sad when she knew that she couldn’t take it with her. The day came and they finally arrived, she starts thinking about this whole trip to the beach, and she realizes that maybe this little vacation wasn’t a bad idea after all. She left the beach, but the memories and the good times that she had are still with her even though she’s not there
Fleming uses statistics to describe how dangerous it is for refugees to cross the Mediterranean, Fleming stats, “ By August of that same year over 2000 refugees had already died trying to cross the Mediterranean.” By using this statistic Fleming tries to convey to the audience just how dangerous and deadly it can be for refugees who are trying to flee the war torn country of Syria. And that if they aren't killed by the fighting going on in their own county they are in just as much danger trying to flee their country. Fleming continues to use logos to appeal to her audience by stating that half of Syria's population which as of 2014 was at 22 million has been forced to relocate from their homes or flee the country altogether. Lastly Fleming uses statistics from the day Doah's boat was attacked and capsized to show just how tragic that trip was, Fleming stats, “ Only 11 out of the 500 people onboard that refugee boat survived.” With this statistics it really help to shed light on how desperate the situation is in Syria and how dangerous it is for Syrian refugees trying to flee their
GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES [TO WHAT EXTENT SHOULD COUNTRIES BE MORALLY OBLIGATED TO GIVE ASYLUM TO REFUGEES?] AMITH SARANYU D.S 10 IGCSE DECCAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL “ Turning back boats full of people seeking asylum in their hour of need is not fair.” - Councilor Linda Scott. RATIONALE I chose this topic because I read an article on the Internet stating that the refugee crisis worldwide has displaced 60 million people from their homes since the end of World War II pushing asylum to their limits. That article stated the threat countries are facing as they are fleeing from countries like Syria and Iraq to places like Central America and Africa to seek asylum.

The boys were on a plane fleeing the terror of war, when their plane was struck down and crashed on a tropical island. This island has no adults, no civilization, and no rules, making it seemingly perfect for a group of young boys. The boys’ adventures are full of insanity, fun, and fear. The plot of this
The search and rescue mission was initially hampered because the Comoros nation has no search and rescue capabilities. Two French aircraft and a boat were sent to hunt through the wreakage and local fishermen joined in the search. Thirteen hours after the crash these local fisherman made an incredible discovery. All 153 passengers were initially believed to be dead but they found the sole survivor, 14 year old Bahia Bakari, who had been travelling with her mother. She had been able to cling to the wreckage and after spending three weeks in hospital she made a full recovery from her terrifying ordeal.
After stories of mass shootings, death marches, and mass drownings reached the United States in the 1890’s, a public outcry prompted human rights activist and the Red Cross to take charge. In an attempt to ease the starvation, disease, and trauma that the surviving Armenians faced, thousands of volunteers and missionaries were sent to aid the survivors, in addition to the millions of dollars raised by the American people. This temporarily puts a hold on the rising death toll of the Armenian Genocide. Sadley, After
According to Tom Andrew, it is estimated that nearly 100,000 children were orphaned, abducted or abandoned. And even today, twenty-six percent of the Rwandan population still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder today (United to end genocide). A scene that was emotionally touching was, when Paul’s neighbor witnesses his parents being killed. And throughout the film, I noticed and felt the anxiety of each cast member. For example, Paul had left his family alone to get some drinks for the soldier, when he returned, they had all ran underneath the bed to hide.
