Best Sandwich…

Best sandwich ever…cornweb

I’ve been on holiday. I’ve been reading posts on social media about refugees drowning in the Mediterranean Sea. The picture of the young boy washed up on a beach near the Turkish resort of Bodrum broke my heart – how did we get to this?

The boy’s name was Aylan Kurdi, he was three years old. His five year old brother Gulip also died along with their mother. Their father, Abdullah, survived, I can’t imagine his pain. They were among at least 12 Syrians who drowned attempting to reach Greece that day.

I can’t post about a sandwich today. Instead I spent my time setting up a direct debit to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) who, on September 2 this year rescued 1,658 people in their biggest day of operations on the Mediterranean Sea since operations began on May 2.
