Accepting refugees the right thing to do

The greatest lesson we have garnered from these experiences, is that people the world over are just like us.

My wife and I are fortunate to have spent a considerable amount of time overseas. Our travels have exposed us to many cultures, ethnicities, and religions. The greatest lesson we have garnered from these experiences, is that people the world over are just like us. In every country we have visited, parents love their children, teenagers are a mystery, and young men are macho and drive too fast. People the world over are the same! We have nothing to fear and everything to gain by welcoming immigrants to our shores. Accepting refugee families who are running from the horrors of war is simply, the right thing to do.
