Being a refugee isn't fun, you see. It is not an adventure. It isn't an extended vacation at the expense of another. It is a sacrifice. It is a last resort. They may be safe here, but they wish that their own country wasn't at war. They would rather be there than here. Frankly, it sucks that my new neighbours are Syrian refugees.
Tree hugger, snow enthusiast, lover of art and religion and vegetarian food.
I'm from Calgary. I enjoy traveling, and visiting museums, and telling people to recycle. I spent a semester in China and another in Jerusalem. I am currently attending Brigham Young University in Utah. I believe in education and the power that art has to connect people with the realities of history and people of the past.
