These children are among the thousands of refugees at the Jalozai camp in western Pakistan.

For many of us insulated by distance and privilege, it is difficult to picture what the U.N. calls the "massive displacement" of up to a million Pakistanis in the wake of a military offensive against Taliban forces in the country's northwest. A million. What does that look like? This is what two look like.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
