Reading this article in TIME made me think about, one, how good we have it in much of the western world and, two, what would I carry with me if this happened tomorrow; if I were a refugee.

Showing what the people escaping Syria have led, the stories told by these photos are both sad and powerful. Some of the people only have one thing to hold onto. Some have more but overall, they have almost nothing but what they do have, they truly value.  

What would you take?
