Have a little empathy.

A citizen, a refugee, an undocumented, a detainee, an immigrant, a permanent resident – These phases in life has shaped who I am. Someone still afraid of airports and immigration, who has started life over plenty of times and who has said goodbyes too often. I have only felt a tiny portion of pain than those who are going through it today. People escape their home in hope for a better living condition. Is it not okay to search for peace, for safety? I don’t see why there can’t be more EMPATHY in the world. If you haven’t experienced it personally than thank god for your stars..but research and ask, because someone from your family tree sacrificed a lot so you could be where you are today.
