World Refugee Day

Sometimes we’re so busy that we forget who we are and where we come from -the essentials that make us who we are. By all indication today seemed just another day for me – until I learned just few minutes ago that today, June 20th, is World Refugee Day. How can I forget who I am? How can I forget the millions of people who have been forced to become refugees. Sometimes we humans forget who we are if we stay a place for too long.

I will always feel refugee until the day I can go back to where I’ve come from without fearing anyone. Yet I know I’m one of the very few lucky ones who have gotten a second chance on life. But it’d be irresponsible for those of us who have gotten a chance to forget those unfortunate ones. At least we can remember them in thoughts, if we cannot help.

  2. Amen! And what a second chance have we all been given. It is so easy to take all these opportunities and peace for granted.
