I AM THE DAUGHTER OF REFUGEES

Pope Francis’ Speech:
I have a visceral reaction when I hear such hatred around the topic of immigration. Frankly, it makes me sad that so many of us have forgotten that we are children of immigrants and speak from our wealthy homes with such little humility, such little perspective and so much entitlement.
 
Lately, for me, that has gone one step further as I look at the crisis in Syria.
I AM THE DAUGHTER OF REFUGEES.
What does this mean and what responsibilities do I have?
The Miami Jews opened their homes to the Catholic children of Cuba in the 60’s.
What does this mean and what responsibilities do I have?
 
Dare I ask myself these questions?
