15. Think on this: Bangladesh is one of the few nations to offer refuge to the Rohingya.

They don't have adequate resources to provide a GOOD refuge, with adequate food, sanitation, medical care and facilities for the refugees to begin some kind of economic activity, etc.

Bangladesh doesn't even have that for much of its own population, they are so poor.

But they opened their border to the Rohingya, anyway. A poor refugee camp is better than the murderous regime determined to exterminate the Rohingya in Myanmar.

Now those same refugee camps are further threatened by flooding and climate damage.

But the Bangladeshi, from their own experience of need and desperation, reached out and tried to help anyway.

And what are we doing?

It's one of the great humanitarian disasters of our generation.

And we are basically leaving it up to those who suffered one of the great humanitarian disasters of the previous generation.

Will we ever learn?

sadly,
Bright
