Don't Stop Dreaming

Dear Jerry,

“Don’t stop dreaming. Don’t stop even if you are in bad conditions. Bad conditions will not last forever.”

Jerry, this is just one piece of advice shared by Mohammad, a refugee who fled to Greece from Syria. He’s now been there just over a year—and found hope and safety in a place he had never called home before.

Who better to share advice to newly arriving families than those who have come before? In honor of World Refugee Day, I invite you to watch this video highlighting the spirit and dignity of refugee families, eager to help others find hope—and a home—like they did. See Below

This Saturday, June 20, is World Refugee Day. It’s a day to remember those who have been driven to leave their homes in search of safety and hope. Now, with COVID-19, they find themselves facing a new threat and more uncertainty.

Even as many of us slowly return to normal, I can’t help but think of the refugees I have met, like the families in this video, as they face—yet again—a crisis beyond their control. We honor them and remember them in our prayers this week. See Below

Peace and light,

Sean L. Callahan
