It is important for us to realize that most people are not born evil. A true psychopath is actually rare. Innocents are systematically trained to be evil - and often it happens when they are still children and adolescents. So for those who have been there and overcome the darkness: forgive yourself and pat yourself on the back. You are the hero for saying “no more” and finding a way out. And those who have resisted all the way along, whatever the price - you are who the rest of us should strive to be 🙏🏼——————————————#Repost @doctorswithoutborders (@get_repost ) ・・・ Abdlu Rahman Al Hamad left Syria because he "didn't want to kill people in the war." Abdul was conscripted but refused to join. As punishment, for 14 days he was locked in a cell and tortured: “they put me in a cell alone, under the ground, everyday a strong man with a long beard beat me - everywhere in my body, and in my private area too, which has caused me so many problems, even now. They gave me food once a day.” Abdul has since tried to kill himself three times. He sought help from MSF, and we offered him medication. “Now I can sleep. Now I can eat. It helped,” he says. But the post traumatic stress he is living with continues to plague him: “I don’t have any hope for my future, they destroyed everything. They destroyed my dreams.” ___ Photo by @hammond_robin /Witness Change for @natgeo ___ #worldrefugeeday #MSF #DoctorsWithoutBorders #Moria #Lesvos #Greece #refugee #mentalhealth #mentaltrauma #Syrian #sea #trapped #water #suicide #PTS #conscription

This exhibit at the Manetti-Shrem museum at UC Davis shattered my heart. The tears started falling at the emergency blankets. These are people. OUR people. Our neighbors seeking safety and peace. No human is illegal. We are capable of doing better America. So much better.
For #flashbackfriday I am sharing a poem I wrote in 2010 that seems to be sadly relevant to what is going on in America today. I originally wrote this about being a troubled teen locked in a treatment facility. It has taken new meaning to me today. My heart is with the children and families that are suffering and separated from each other right now. 😓😪💓 The Untouchables by Afterglow 🙏🏻🗽😓😪 We are the ones you hear about– The forgotten. Untouched by the human hand, Never felt the warmth of a soul; Never understood the concept of sand. We walk down sidewalks, Kicking our dreams. Bottles in our hands- Hungry for the sound of screams. We cracked every mirror in this hall; Locked in a plexiglass box. Quarantined by society, They took everything but our socks. We are now alone, But we're  all one. We've never heard of love, Or the sound of a gun. Unable to produce tears, We only use salt for our wounds. And night time has no meaning, Beause every day is a blue, blue moon. No one can touch us, No one at all. Not even the trees that lose their leaves in the fall. So, we rock ourselves to sleep at night, And sing lullabies to ease the pain. We read our pretty stories, And wonder what it's like to feel the rain. Sometimes it can be so cold, Glass bubbles make it hard to breathe. Painting pictures with our fingers, Because we don't know how to grieve. But- You’ll never know how much it hurt, Because you never saw us shed a tear. You'll never know the things we felt, Unless you know the sound of fear. And you'll never know the things I never felt, Because you were never here.

I couldn't resist sharing this picture of Yasminara playing outside of her family's emergency shelter. All children, yours, mine, refugee or not deserve a life filled with safety, health, education and wellbeing. . Spreading awareness is powerful... Let's not forget the Rohingya refugees ! .

Seriously, this guy is my rock. god sent me a great one.
Today is the last day of refugee week. Now more than ever, we need a global movement to ensure people forced to flee from their homes can live with dignity and with hope. #withrefugees
- At pRIDE, this month's Bikes Against Deportation (B.A.D.), we honored Roxsana Hernandez, a trans refugee who died in ICE custody a few weeks ago. - People's strong feelings about Trump's immoral, inhumane immigration policies erupted all over town in other protests yesterday: 🗣 an occupation by dozens of parents and kids of the ICE offices at 26 Federal Plaza 🗣 a candlelight vigil in Harlem at Cayuga Centers (an agency hired by DHS to care for 300+ immigrant children separated from their parents) 🗣 an occupation of the Varick Street ICE detention center later in the evening by a few dozen people blocking ICE vans from delivering immigrants - The protests will continue... - The next gathering of B.A.D. will be at Varick and Houston on July 19th at 5 pm. And every third Thursday... - #bikesagainstdeportation #pRIDE 🌈 #justiceforroxsana #roxsanahernandez #refugee #killedbyICE #stopICE #abolishICE #shutitdown #ICE #DHS #gotohelljeffsessions #impeachtrump #immoral #inhumane #immigrationpolicy #immigrantchildren #detained #immigrantfamilies #separated #keepfamiliestogether #familiesbelongtogether #keepfamiliesoutofdetention #cayugacenters #newsanctuarycoalition #reverendbillyandthestopshoppingchoir #reverendbilly #stopshoppingchoir #bikeprotest #bikenyc
A number of years ago, I was privileged to work with what we call the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Eidomeni, Greece, on the border of Macedonia. . . . In this picture there are Nepali, Bangladeshi, and Pakistani refugees who were stranded without a home, unable to move forward into Macedonia and unable to get a job in Greece. . . . Today is a part of international refugee week, and it’s a great reminder of what is going on in the world continually. UNHCR does a great job caring for thousands if not millions of people each year who are fleeing from their countries, and I’m proud of the UN if only for the work they have done with UNHCR. —- they’ve done other great things too. . . . If nothing else, be grateful for the country that you still have, because most of the people in this picture don’t have a home or a country to return to. . . . America has its problems, but I’m able to return to it. It hasn’t been bombed from the skies, and we have jobs we can go to without eminent threat. For that I’m grateful. . . . #refugee #refugees #refugeeweek2018 #syrianrefugeecrisis #bangledeshi #pakistani #nepali #bordercrossing #barbedwire #greece #eidomenicamp #eidomeni #reporting

What a day! Thanks to Tennessee Governor's School For International Studies, @uofmemphis @uofmcrewscenter and some brilliant high school students from across Tennessee for working with us! The University of Memphis serves as the host of the Governor's School for International Studies, which takes place on the UofM Campus each year during the month of June. Some of the brightest high school students from across the state of Tennessee participate in this program each year, and our organization serves as the nonprofit parter for the student's service day This year, the students split into two groups and focused on the following campaigns for our organization: 1. Designing the much-anticipated fundraising campaign for the first high school in Yida Refugee Camp, South Sudan. 2. Redesigning and updating our advocacy campaign to get The Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act (S.1158) through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“All that I hope for is to leave the camp,” says Riham Saad, 12, from Damascus. She left Syria with her parents and siblings fearing they’d be killed if they stayed. “The house I was living in was destroyed,” she said. Speaking of life in Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesvos, Riham says: “life in the camp is not good, because people are fighting, because of the gas bombing by the police, and it is not good for us… the camp environment is making the situation difficult because many kids are sick in the camp, the food line makes life difficult and increases the stress… the environment in the camp is very difficult especially the food line and makes people fight, if you miss your turn you miss your food and water.” ___ Our teams are providing medical and mental health support in Moria camp and run a clinic for severe mental health cases in Mytilene, the capital of Lesvos. ___ Photo by /Witness Change for ___ #worldrefugeeday #MSF #DoctorsWithoutBorders #Moria #Lesvos #Greece #refugee #mentalhealth #mentaltrauma #Syrian #sea #trapped #water #child #PTS @doctorswithoutborders

I am grateful to you! Legal and illegal immigrants. You enrich my life everyday in America. From my Doctor, favorite restaurants, to the food on my table, and the house I live in. I see your contributions to this country everywhere. I am not afraid of you. I do not believe you are animals, gang members or the worst your country has to offer. Many Americans believe the content of your character has nothing to do with the color of your skin or where you were born. #immigration , #refugee , #daca , #aclu
Day 6 Complete! Was tired today but now I feel great foe a few reasons which I tell in the video! One more day left everyone. So ready for it to be over, though I honestly feel pretty terrible saying that... 🙁I'm going to do a thoughts video tomorrow on my last day update. Will tell you all what reflections I have made. Please consider donating! Even just $5 would do something as it all adds up 😊 Let's show refugees that we are with them, not against them! 👫🏽👬🏽👭🏽 ----------------------------------------- As some of you may know, I am currently participating in a challenge called the Ration Challenge. It is a challenge in which I eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee for one week - just a small amount of rice, lentils, chickpeas, beans, tofu (as I don't eat sardines) and oil. That's it - no red meat, no coffee and no alcohol! It would be amazing if you could donate to support this cause! Just $64 NZD (or $45 USD) will feed a family of 6 for the next two weeks, but feel free to donate as much as you'd like! You can donate here: https://my.rationchallenge.org.nz/tiarra-fryar My current goal is $750 NZD, but anything helps! It would be great if you could also share this video with your friends and family 😄 Thanks so much! #rationchallenge #refugee #fundraising #syria #food #challenge #thestruggleisreal #donate #oxfam #money
Yelling for Palestine. Wall. This wall is next to Aida refugee camp. It’s built 8 years ago. I met several people in the camp, almost all of them were being arrested before. They can’t throw stones, but why can you take away their homes? #explain #life #palestine #wall #separationwall #hard #difficult #refugee

"The Greatest Divide In Our Country Is Not Between Republicans & Democrats, It Is Between People Who Care & Do Not Care" if you ever wondered what you would be doing during the holocaust, your doing it right now - & guess who hitler is. 👉 Swipe to hear real audio of what is going on at the border. 🇺🇸 #staywoke #kidsincages #compassionnotcages ________________________________________ *Facts* for Trump supporters who are brainwashed by Fox News / Also how to spot a Fox News brainwashed person if they use any of these lies to defend what is going on: . 💯 Clinton did not make this policy. His policy was made for children who came ALONE without family. Trump 100% made this policy of seperating families as a form of "zero tolerance" by Jeff Sessions. Hilary Clinton warned us of this & Fox news denied it. Liars. . 💯 Summercamp? They are kept in fenced in cages, sleeping on the floor with tinfoil blankets. There is a rule they can not hold babies or comfort children to avoid allegations. There is massive psychological trauma within this forced #summercamp . . 💯 Trump did NOT sign anything to solve this. He signed an executive order for kids & parents to be detained together in prisons, however he can not even do this because a 1997 court settlement does not allow you to detain a child for over 20 days so they will have to seperate. Moreover, there are 2,000 missing children who will not be able to reunite with thier families because Trump deported them already & does not care to find them. 2,000 CHILDREN WILL BE PUT INTO AN ALREADY BROKEN FOSTER CARE SYSTEM. . 💯 Obama was a great president. Stop DEFLECTING. Focus. Kids are in cages being treated like prisoners because of #potus . . 💯 Fox News is brainwashing you. Change the channel. Block your ears, RUN! 🙉 You are being lied to & psychologically brainwashed. Watch the documentary "The Brainwashing Of My Father". What side of history do you want to be on, good or evil? ________________________________________ #Immigration #DumpTrump #FreeThemAll #America #FamiliesBelongTogether #Refugee #DoSomething #SilenceSpeaksVolumes #StandUp #ChooseCompassion
Yelling for Palestine. Key of return. Entrance of Aida refugee camp. Since 1948, being forced to leave home, Palestinians take their keys and waiting for returning home one day. They’re still waiting for the day to come. #palestine #refugee #camp #key #entrance #home #wish #wait
The story of a group of #SomaliRefugees who joined a largely white high school soccer team in #Maine and helped lead it to the state championship could soon be on #Netflix . The Portland Press Herald reports that Netflix has optioned the book “#OneGoal ,” which tells the story of the 2015 #LewistonHighSchool soccer team. The book portrays the team as a unifying force in a mill town that had been uneasy with an influx of #immigrants . Author Amy Bass said Wednesday the option doesn’t necessarily mean the story will end up as a movie or TV series, but she’s glad there’s interest. Assistant coach Dan Gish says he expects the players would be proud that their story continues to draw national interest. #africacablenetwork #sport #entertainment #somalia #refugee #soccer
Meet my buddy Kisanet, she is like my sister. We met almost a year ago, when she was already in The Netherlands for 3 years.

I am happy to be part of her life. #buddytobuddy #breda #denieuweveste #refugee #sister #thenetherlands #cuddle #buddy

Autocorrect strikes again! 😂 The monthly #budget won't be affected, not the monthly #burger . A young friend's car got mauled in an accident today, but she still has to get to work. It looks like a few people are going to pitch in for a rental car, but she asked us first. Unfortunately, we are having to pay off a visit to the emergency room, so we're having to be extra mindful for the next while. Which meant texting my husband our #monthlybudget numbers so he could decide on an amount to loan-gift her. (We never loan more than we could afford to gift to prevent hard feelings and drama. Especially with our #refugee friends like this young lady. They're trying to establish themselves here and support their families in their countries of origin. My husband watched his own immigrant mother struggle, so he knows just how far catching a break can go.) #wifeathome #budgeting #charityneverfaileth #medicalbills #autoaccident #budgetforcharity #planforcharity #raiseyourstandardofgiving
New @hellenicmuseum Exhibit Explores Impact of World #RefugeeCrisis https://bit.ly/2thJDo9 #Refugee : A person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape #war , #persecution or #naturaldisaster . “A refugee’s story is different than a migrant’s story. #Migrants make a choice to move from one place to another. #Refugees don’t have such a choice,” said National Hellenic Museum President Laura Calamos. She and the photographer were guiding a reporter through a preview of “#LivesAfloat : The Greek Refugee Crisis through the Lens of #TasosMarkou 2015-2017.” “It’s cold. It’s rocky on the ocean, pitch black. One of those rocks slices the dinghy. Now you’re leaking. Everyone takes their shoes off, begins desperately scooping...” By the end of 2014, the world was facing the largest number of #forciblydisplaced people globally since #WorldWarII — more than 60 million. By early 2015, the crisis slammed #Europe — via Greece, a nation itself facing economic collapse. Markou traveled to the border island of #Lesvos , a port of entry that saw the greatest refugee influx, to cover the crisis, and was forever changed. #WorldRefugeeDay is recognized annually on June 20. The exhibit is particularly timely, as the world watched with horror the Trump Administration's policy of forced #familyseparation , wrenching children from #immigrant families arriving at the nation’s borders .....
Families should not be separated. There is a more comprehensive abd sensible way we treat those seeking asylum from countries they can no longer live in safely. They just want help and a better life, but our country’s racism keeps that from happening. #smh #immigrants #migrant #family #children #mother #refugee #asylum #latina #latinx

Do you feel ALL.THE.LOVE? A T L ? We do! This month all of us at {sacred} thread have set to explore some really deep subjects. What its means to be healthy, what it means to challenge yourself... what it means to LOVE yourself. . This kind of thinking isn't for the faint of heart. These are tough questions that take a great deal of time and inward reflection to answer. . In the end, we realize that only love can see us through. Love for ourselves, for who we are and who we will eventually become; love for those around us, our families, friends and communities and love for our world and the constants in our lives that keep us grounded. . Share that love with yourself and others. If you're a #lovewarrior come join us tomorrow in #OldFourthward as we host a #communityyogapractice led by @lia.koski to benefitting @supportKIND (Kids in Need of Defense), who are working on the frontlines to assist #refugee and #assylumseekingchildren who are facing deportation or separation.
