America's Deep South embraces refugees
This article in the Guardian, Small town in America's Deep South welcomes 1,500 refugees a year is about a remarkable small town of 13,000 called Clarkston, Georgia, (USA), where, over a period of 25 years, more than 40,000 refugees from Vietnam, Liberia, Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Bhutan, Congo and Syria have landed, and have created a caring, sharing and tolerant community.
This quote gave my day a boost, and I hope it will do the same for yours.
"In Clarkston there’s a lot of ethnic groups that were at odds with each other before, and are now neighbors..... You watch them learn how to love each other. I think refugees have a lot to teach Americans about forgiveness.”
