The Boy and the Sea

The story did not begin with the worldwide TV snatched image of the Syrian child Elan, thrown on the Turkish shores by the waves, and it most certainly did not end with it either. There was once a boy who had joy in drawing the sea. One day, in hope to escape war and misery, into the bottom of the sea he dove. Alas, he found himself trapped amongst swarms of screens that distorted his image and stole his story. No… the story did not end there. Images are still flowing, and the world is still watching…
