We Should Not Hide Our Eyes From Europe's Migrant Crisis

I am currently in Hungary, documenting the journeys of Syrian refugees, the very journey that today took another young life. It's easy to blame the parents for exposing their son to such deadly danger, but only if you forget the barrel bombs and Islamic State beheadings that they are fleeing.

Those parents are heroes; I admire their sheer determination to bring their children to a better life.
