The Heartbreaking Plight of Those Fleeing Mosul
Images, perhaps, convey the sadness of the refugee crisis best. Every day we hear about thousands of people being forced to abandon their homes and flee to other countries — their lives broken by never-ending war. These images from northern Iraq, where coalition forces have been pushing against ISIS for months, really drive that message home. Each of the 33 photos serves as a visual reminder of the horror of war, and they will leave no one unmoved. They are testimonies to a reality that should make us think and act.
