We had the pleasure of attending the pre-opening of Refuge last night in SoHo, NYC. Truly moving. The artists involved visually portrayed the lives of refugees (pictured above are some from Syria and Lebanon), and posed the unseeming-ly thoughprovoking question, "What is home?". Some responses to the interactive display included, "Home is being surrounded by people I love and love me", "Home is where all the pieces fit", "Home is where you have to be nothing but yourself", "Home is security"...
Many of those featured in the exhibit though have lost their ideal sense of security. Separated from their families. Now forced to succumb to life on refugee camps. Some children without their parents. Taken from their homes. Living in tents, in limbo. And others stranded.
With today's current events, where immigration and equality have become such significant topics of conversation we must be empathetic to those that are really suffering in the face of such troubling conflicts, and be vigilant in our pursuit to protect the civil liberties we are ALL deserving of. Thank you Sid Lee Collective for sharing this. We could not be prouder to live in New York City where diversity thrives. And even so, people here still face battles every day. 'Imagine equality' worldwide. ✌🏾️+❤️ #civilliberties #NYC
