It really pains me to witness the refugee crisis because my own family has had to flee Syria. And what makes it worse is that not only are hundreds of families being displaced, but people continue to shame the influx of refugees. It’s like they don’t understand that my people would much rather stay in Syria but they literally would die if they did. Just the lack of compassion in general.
