Persona non-grata

When all the attention of the world is focused on Muslims in Iran, Iraq, Afshanistan and Palestine, there are some who are persona non grata in thier own land. They have been called one of the world's most persecuted people. Some argue that they are also one of the most forgotten.

The Rohingya of Burma..nowhere to run, nowhere to go.

"This country is like Burma. We are persecuted here just like we were persecuted there. We are like a football being kicked from one to the other." - on living in Bangladesh.

I need you

I need you, girl
I couldn't live a day without you

Well I tried to write a special song
A love song just for you
To explain the way you make me feel inside
Though the meaning may be simple
And the words may not be new
I couldn't make it clearer if I tried

I need you
And I couldn't live a day without youI need you
More than anyone could ever know

I need you
And I wanna build my world around you
I need you
I need you

Well I sang the words and realized
It'd all been said before
So I tried a different line that meant the same
But it didn't have the feeling
And the first one said much more
So I guess I'll have to say it once again
I need you
And I couldn't live a day without you
I need you
More than anyone could ever know
(More than anyone could ever know)

I couldn't live a day without you, girl
I need you and I wanna build my world around you

Baby (I need you) (Oh I need you)
Baby(Couldn't live a day without you)
(Ooh)More than anyone could ever know
(More than anyone could ever know…
