I know it's not fun to talk politics.... I know I could ignore this issue due to risk of losing my popularity. But why have a following if you don't share what you really believe? Let's demand a more loving way America. #Repost @refinery29
Today is #WorldRefugeeDay. This day was created to honor the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of people who have been forced to flee. For generations refugees have helped make this country diverse and culturally rich. But as we honor them today, we must also remember that our government continues to separate immigrant families at our border. While the words “refugee” and “immigrant” are NOT interchangeable terms, some immigrants are refugees who were forced to flee persecution in their home countries. We all need to do what we can to help others find peace, comfort, understanding, and most importantly, safety.
