What do you know about refugees?
It’s definitely the trending topic within the last few days.
But these people, refugees fleeing their homes to make a better life for their children and themselves, aren’t a trend we talk about for a week and forget. While we move on with our lives, they continue to search the sky for bombs and seek shelter in broken buildings.
It’s amazing seeing so many people, Muslims and non-Muslims, come together and show us what America is really about.
All that protesting? That’s the beautiful sight of democracy. We have the freedom to disagree and voice our opinion. Sometimes, it may seem that all the screaming at the top of our lungs and fighting for what is right just isn’t doing anything for us but this protest showed otherwise. American’s were heard and they were listened to.
It goes to show the great amount of power we have. We just don’t know it. Coming together, pushing aside out differences and fighting for what we believe is right saved many people.
Don’t ever forget how much your voice matters.
