They are also us.

My interest in refugees began during the Syrian civil war when many were forced to flee their homeland. They risked their lives to survive, but due to the complex interests of nations, they were not always accepted.

The international community agonizes a lot about accepting countless refugees due to the actions of hostile terrorist groups. The perception that all refugees are dangerous is a prejudice. They are also human beings. War or other unfortunate events could cause any of us to be refugees. In this piece, refugees are suffering and expressing their hope that we will not forget them.
