Komagata Maru Reminds Us How Lonely It Can Get When We Stop Letting Others In

When I see the photo of the Sikhs on the decks of the Komagata Maru, I think of the ones trying so desperately to pry that door open on land.

Their story, and reasons for helping those barred from entry is as old as our nation itself.
