Tiny Body, Big Message

The CNN on its detailed report the Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi earlier today tries to show us his family’s unfortunate journey in search of peace and their fate.

Aylan Kurdi 's last journey was supposed to take him to a safe home -- hundreds of miles away from the relentless war in his native Syria. Instead, it will end with a funeral for the 2-year-old in the city he tried to flee. Aylan's body arrived in the Turkish city of Istanbul on Friday. From there, it will make its final trip home to Kobani, the Syrian city his family left to escape the daily barrage of bombs. His funeral is expected to take place this weekend. Images of the small Syrian boy will live on long after he's gone. The photos, which have galvanized the world and become the latest symbol of the migrant crisis in Europe, show his tiny body lying on a Turkish beach. He's wearing a red shirt and black shoes, his face partly covered by sand and gentle waves, as if he was sleeping.

Exhausted of the constant conflict and struggle for survival, they left their hometown in search of a better, safer life. Aylan, his brother, Galip, 4, and mother, Rehen, drowned trying to make that dream a reality. Only the children's father, Abdullah Kurdi, survived. He'll accompany their bodies to Kobani, according to Anadolu news agency.

 "I don't want anything else from this world. Everything I was dreaming of is gone. I want to bury my children and sit beside them until I die."  Kurdi said after the incident. Here is more from the report.

US Embassy Celebrates 75th Anniversary of State Department’s Exchanges

The US Embassy in Addis Ababa on a press briefing announced people to people connections and the cultural and educational exchanges that facilitate them are incredibly important and are a foundation for U.S.-Ethiopian relations and United States foreign policy generally.  The Embassy said this year the United States is celebrating 75 years of U.S. State Department exchanges, and the U.S. Embassy is hosting events throughout September to highlight the role of exchanges in U.S. Ethiopia relations.

Secretary of State John Kerry highlighted the importance of exchanges to U.S. foreign policy earlier this year when spoke about his own personal experience as an exchange student in Europe that, as he said, left him “with the conviction that every time a student touches down in America, or a scholar crosses an ocean to study, the world grows a little bit closer and we understand each other more.”

The U.S. Embassy is proud to open our month of programs with a photo exhibit at the National Museum on the history of U.S.-Ethiopia people-to people relations that is open to the public from September 4 – 13.  The exhibition covers a period of almost a hundred years, starting with Melaku Bayen, the first U.S trained physician who was in the U.S. in the 1920s.

Ethiopian Team to Take On Seychelles Next Saturday

The Ethiopian national football team, commonly called the Wallias, will take on Seychelles the coming Saturday in their second match of the 2017 Gabon African Cup of Nation qualifiers.

As part of the preparation for the Seychelles first leg the Ethiopian national team had their international friendly against Rwanda in Kigali in which the Ethiopian side conceded a 3-1 defeat by the home side.

This was not seen as a good sign for the national team but the coach Yohanes Sahile expressed confidence that his side would be strengthened in their qualifier against Seychelles. "The result earned in the international friendly was not that good. What was important in that game was the lesson we have taken from that performance. We have seen our weak points and definitely we will make amends," Yohanes said. The coach further said that all his players are ready to face Seychelles.

Ethiopian fans and journalist will also be traveling to Seychelles after the Main Sponsor Walia Beer(Heineken) covers all expenses for more than 200 Ethiopian with Chartered Ethiopian Plane.
