Three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, from Syria, drowned with his five-year-old brother and their mother in Turkey as they tried to flee to Europe.

On September 4th, someone placed an obituary for the little Kurdish boy Aylan Kurdi in The Sydney Morning Herald:

Aylan

You did not deserve to drown in the coldness of water and in the coldness of human indifference.

You were not a Migrant. You were not a Refugee. You were a three-year-old little boy wanting to play safely, away from the threats of violence and war.

In Heaven, you will be nursed by those who held you, by those who kissed you and by those who risked everything in the hope of you reaching the shores of safety.

Rest In Peace Aylan Kurdi. May God forgive us for failing you.
