Can you imagine what it would be like if you were a refugee?
This has been on my mind a lot lately as we raise awareness of the plight of refugees here and around the world.
What if your city, your home, and all around you were caught up in a war that destroyed everything you owned and took away your freedom. What if there were fighters who wanted to kill you and your family. What if you were a woman or girl and they kidnap you and rape you? What if . . .
What would you do?
And what if you were "rescued" and sent to America where you didn't speak the language or didn't know anyone there?
What if . . .
And here we are, safe and sound. What can we do to help refugees here and around the world. IRC helps refugees around the world. And the Community Refugee and Immigration Service helps people in Columbus. (http://www.crisohio.org/)
Will you help?
