Photo of the Day: Refugee Taking Care of Her Mother 
 Photographer Note: Rarely in modern history have so many been so desperate to flee, reshaping Europe and the world. Their journey began in war, poverty and oppression.

Their desperation is only matched by their fortitude and sense of hope.   Photo by Dimitra Stasinopoulou (Glyfada, Athens, Greece); Athens, Greece
