“A refugee is a person who is outside their home country because they have suffered (or feared) persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, or political opinion; because they are a member of a persecuted social category of persons; or because they are fleeing a war.”

What if the media said…Govenor Asa Hutchinson opposes *innocent people suffering from war* being relocated to Arkansas.

I’m more afraid of this “rational fear” that people have back home than being here at the refugee camp.

After our second day volunteering in Lesvos, I met so many amazing people. I hope my new friends find opportunities to live and love in peace where ever they may. Inshallah.

كل شيء سيكون على ما يرام
