Every year, the lives of millions are completely torn apart due to various forms of crisis, as they are forced to leave their countries due to conflicts, or for religious and political reasons. These people are known as refugees. A refugee is “someone who has been forced to leave a country because of war or for religious or political reasons”- as defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

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
Throughout our history we have had many tragic events and some of these events caused a very large amount of people to die or be mistreated. There were lots of people letting these acts be permitted because of their ignorance and pure hatred. The act of genocide and the extermination of groups of people happened because people were not speaking up against intolerance, hatred and propaganda.

According to World Without Genocide, “over 480,000 people have been killed, and over 2.8 million people are displaced.”(1) These statistics show that not only have many people gotten killed but the genocide has caused 2.8 million people to abandon their home. The conflict in Darfur is clearly a genocide because it falls under the definition of genocide which includes killing or targeting a specific group of people because of racial or social difference. A quote from Human Rights Watch states how women have to face the genocide every day, “at least 221 women and girls were raped in Tabit over 36 hours…” (1) 221 women in 36 hours means about 6 women were raped an hour. The mass rape of women and girls in Darfur have lead to more people with AIDS and is clearly a method of genocidal torture towards women and girls. In the Darfur conflict, only Darfurian women are being raped therefore it falls under the category of “causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group”(Prevent genocide international, 1) which is one of the categories that classifies a genocide according to the United Nations.
Conditions for the small country worsened as a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, and over 300,000 people were killed, and 1.5 million were displaced, leaving them homeless.

As the environment became virtually uninhabitable, many Haitians came to the United States, seeking asylum, and an opportunity to better the lives for themselves and their
“Human-rights experts estimate that more than 2000,000 children worldwide are still being used as combatants, usually against their will…. there have been reports of children being used as soldiers or suicide bombers.” This evidence from Armed & Underage explains how so many of these child soldiers didn’t have any choice. They’re forced to fight, forced to kill, and many are forced to die. Why should we punish those who never had a choice? Furthermore, child soldiers should not be held morally responsible for their
