“Many years ago I didn’t expect to be a refugee… as you are not expecting yourself to be.
The decision of leaving home was the most difficult decision I have ever had to make, but there were no more options to choose from.
There is nothing like home. But being home without a house and fearing death were the reasons I decided finally to accept being a refugee.
Despite the language barriers, I found lots of warm welcomes, which makes me believe that love is stronger than hate, and humanity still exists.
I appreciate these new countries and I love these lovely people who are standing with us.
Choose love Xxx”
