On the 2nd of September 2015, the body of three-year-old Syrian migrant, Aylan Kurdi, washed up on a Turkish beach after an overcrowded inflatable raft, carrying sixteen Syrian refugees, collapsed.

Song for Aylan expresses my profound sadness at the plight of all refugees and the unwillingness of most Western nations to help.
