    I feel very sad. Look at the third picture – These expensive vehicles are in our country which still belongs to the third world has been made possible by those suffering in the ME. They are struggling to reach home. Some have even purchased tickets. Please make a concerted effort to bring them home instead of singing and dancing at this time when so many people are dying around the world.
