What symbol?

When I see this symbol…

I think of a father torn from his wife and his three young children never knowing if he will see them again.

I think of a young mother hiding for years to protect her life and the life of her children.

I think of one group of people declaring themselves superior to another group of people.

I think of war.

I think of death.

I think of hate.
