This is a photo of my gr-gr-grandfather. He lived through a time when people (mobs) persecuted members of his faith and drove them from their homes (and this was in America – the supposed ‘Land of the Free’)! He and many others were essentially religious refugees. So I need to remember to help, serve and do what I can to help modern-day refugees.
I thought this video (link below) was really well done. It was a good reminder to me that I need to “Be that Someone”. Life is so hard for many people – especially refugees. It’s called:
“Be the Someone – A refugee’s life is changed by the volunteers and friends who helped her adapt to a new environment.”
My big question was HOW? I don’t personally know any refugees. My answer came from this article: 40 Ways to Help Refugees.
Have a great Sunday! Do, learn OR HELP, someone NEW!
I had not seen that video before. It really touches the heart. What a strong and inspiring young woman she is.
A great reminder how important it is to help others and refugees have so many needs. Thanks for these shares.
