Today is #WorldRefugeeDay. We are reading Alan Gratz’s wonderful book #Refugee as a family, which feels more important every day. History is an incredible teacher, as are current events. Compassion, empathy, respect for others - lessons for us all, at every age.
@cnn: “Today, 25.4 million people find themselves forcibly displaced and living in another country, more than double the population of Belgium.” Leaving everything in hopes of safety, security and a better life for themselves and their children.
