Refugees are you and me

This statement has been on my mind as I think about these wonderful people always being labeled as ‘refugees’. Why can’t they be labeled teacher, doctor, business owner, chef, scientist, etc. Why do they have to be defined by their situation and not by who they were before they were forced to flee their homeland?

Last night, while I was carrying out research into my latest university assignment, focusing on learning spaces in refugee camps, I came across this powerful and emotive article.

THE ONLY SCARY THING ABOUT SYRIA’S REFUGEES IS THAT THEY’RE JUST LIKE US

Refugees are people just like us, with dreams and hopes for the future.

We need to do more, to help make their dreams and hopes are reality!
