Refugee In A World That Never Changes

Daily Draw: Gong Hee Fot Choy ~ Sun

Book wisdom: trouble, soon erased

Look at all the tents on the other side of the station. Today that reminds me of the refugee camps at Calais. Tomorrow there will be another somewhere else.
When we were in Calais, curbsitting because everything closes for lunch, a car raced up, the window came down, and a english speaker asked us for directions. Troubles come in all colors and there are many ways to be a refugee.

"you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land

  1. I had no idea you had traveled to France. :) That poem by Shire is a heart wrencher.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
