I have heard and read different opinions about the wave of Syrian refugees who try to make their way in to the EU. Then I went to Lesvos. 7 days on the Greek Island gave me a healthier, human perspective on the situation. Seeing the people behind the headlines with my own eyes, and feeling their deep struggle, broke my heart. Are they the “threat” people talk about? All I saw were courageous people in a time of crisis, looking for hope. I also got to meet brave volunteers from all over the world who reach out to help all people regardless of their religion, race or background. That inspired me. My hope is that this video might tear down some of the walls of bad ideas and opinions we have built around ourselves.
