#tokfriday: Perception, Emotion, Art, and #KiyiyaVuranInsanlik


On Wednesday, September 2nd, an image of a drowned little boy, dressed in bright red t-shirt and jeans shorts, washed up on a prime tourist beach in Turkey shocked social media and the world. The boy was on a refugee boat attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea from Turkey to reach the Greek island of Kos. Over the past past few months tens of thousands of Syrian refugees have attempted to flee the civil war tearing apart their homeland.
