    Sad! At this stage of my life I can no longer feel bad for people in this situation. Maturity and the way life goes makes you realise that we never know what around the corner has for us. Life has a way of putting us on courses where we never thought we'd end up. It must be hard for them in their own country, to risk everything and leave, not knowing what to expect. Let us NEVER get to the point in thinking that nothing like this can ever happen to us....because we just dont know....especially when we live rebellious and disobedient lives; speaking like fools when they say, "there is no God". Be humble at all times, and NEVER diss GOD! I pray that God works something out for these people to give them hope.

      You talk about thinking , if you though about your god and the bible you would realise that we "fools" who say there is no god are correct.

      None of these people are going to comit suicide, no not one. And if they do there is a final resting place for them. Sounds cold but life is real. All they want to do is get to Amerika the great satan according to the late Saddam Hussein.
