World Refugee Day 2003

"It is very appropriate that this day is dedicated to the refugee youth - for all that they must survive and the potential that they represent. 

This day should be the beginning of all of us deciding we should do more for others everyday.

I know that it can feel overwhelming for a person in a different country or a country that has so much, to imagine how we can possibly help someone else somewhere else in the world.

But we can. Each one of us can. We can educate ourselves. We can try to understand others, who they are, what they believe in, what they’ve come from and what they are going through now; to see who they are beyond the headlines."
