It is ironic that at this day and age where the world has become seamless through new technologies, humanity has seemed to be further apart and war, violence continue to rise at an unprecedented rate. The world can only hope of a peaceful and harmonious state. While we cannot completely eradicate war, and misunderstanding we can work to help and work towards the framework for the protection of these people. People who never wanted to be in this situation but are forced to do it. .
