Imagine that tomorrow you wake up to find your country in ruins.
Suppose that many of your family and friends were killed. Suppose you lived in Syria.
You have nothing left. You have no home, no job and nothing to live on.
Several countries band together, thankfully, and offer help in the way of a new home for you and your family. As well, they are offering clothing and a food allowance to get you started. This country has welcomed you with open arms.
You now live in a safe place with a future full of possibility.
What are you going to do? I guarantee that you are going to work your damned ass off and be grateful. Or wouldn’t you? Are you going to sit on your butt and do nothing for the country that saved your damned life? Of course not.
As a refugee I would be grateful and so would you. Now let’s show some compassion for those who need us.
