Did an innocent 3-year old boy’s lifeless body had to get washed ashore to make the world open its eyes to the countless Syrian refugees seeking sanctuary?

Apparently so.

The tragic image of Aylan Kurdi lying face down on a Turkish shore swept the world, causing outrage and grief about the needless death that could have been easily avoided.

Aylan’s death was not the only one. His 5-year old brother and mother also drowned after the boat they were escaping in capsized in the Mediterranean sea. The father is the only survivor.

People are finally starting to notice the desperation and call for help all the Syrian refugees are pleading for and perhaps soon the governments of the world will take some actions will be made as well.

To show their support, artists from around the world are trying to make the final push for action by making the already powerful image of Alyan into artistic recreations that no one can look away from.
