Number three is for Syria

The blog post is a little late in coming due to LoveJoinMe being busy! This one is for Syria.  I’m sure a lot of you struggle to look at the news pictures and not feel moved at the moment.   The picture that seemed to change things for a lot of people was the picture of the little boy washed up on the Turkish beach.  One of LoveJoinMe has been to that beach, the other has a three year old who looks remarkably similar to the little Aylan Kurdi.  The image sat with me for a long time and so we decided to make a donation to Save The Children in the hope that it may help in some small way. Save the Children were running the hashtag #itcouldhavebeenme and, looking at the picture of Aylan from one angle, it certainly could have been my son.
