PERSPECTIVE

In most respects refugees are no different than you and I. The young refugee men love to make music or talk about soccer when in a light mood. Women and young girls still giggle about boys, and children still play mischievous pranks on older siblings. There are doctors, business people, restaurant owners, and teachers in the mix.

~Deuteronomy 10:18-19
