Summary
Two-year-old Alan Kurdi's body washed up on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea on September 2, 2015, and overnight the world awoke to the reality of the Syrian refugee crisis. Tima Kurdi saw the shocking photo of her nephew in her home in Vancouver, Canada. Now she recounts her idyllic childhood in Syria, where she grew up with her brother Abdullah and other siblings in a tight-knit family. She emigrated to Canada, but much of her family remained in Damascus as war overtook her homeland. Their journey to safety was thwarted by politics, hounded by violence, and when tragedy struck, Tima suddenly found herself giving voice to those who didn't have an opportunity to speak for themselves
