World Refugee Day 2018
There are 65.6 million people displaced from their homes at this very moment - more than any other point in human history. Half of those displaced are children.
Tonight, I ponder those statistics and it’s hard not to be overwhelmed with deep sadness. These resilient men, women and children don’t need our pity, they need our love in action. No matter where you are you can make a difference in the life of a refugee struggling to find their place in this world. I have many dear friends on Instagram that are refugees scattered throughout the world.. today I honor you! You have shown me what courage and resilience looks like. I love and miss you dearly. To those on the cold face serving refugees, living and caring for them, and giving them a voice. Today, I thank you - you’re kindness and sacrifice does not go unnoticed. I hope you take the time to say a prayer for 65.6 million beautiful and brave souls today. You are not displaced, you belong! #worldrefugeeday#youbelong 📸 by @michaeldeanmcdonald(a true friend to refugees worldwide)
