Home is the starting place of love, hope, and dreams. Without it, we’re lost.
There are 25 million refugees in the world – people displaced by disaster — people who left because staying was worse than leaving everything familiar behind. “No one leaves home,” said Warsan Shire, “unless home is the mouth of a shark.”
Most of us are descendants of refugees. We’ve all felt misplaced at one time or another. “It is the obligation of every person born in a safer room to open the door when someone in danger knocks,” wrote Dina Nayeri.
Sooner or later, each of us will have to count on the kindness and mercy of strangers. So, let’s not be strangers to those who seek refuge.
