“Refugees are people like anyone else, like you and me.
They led ordinary lives before becoming displaced,
and their biggest dream is to be able to live normally again.
On this World Refugee Day, let us recall our common humanity,
celebrate tolerance and diversity and open our hearts to refugees everywhere.”
– U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon
The United Nations’ World Refugee Day commemorates the millions of refugees throughout the world, honoring their strength, courage, and resilience. Let us each reflect on how I can honor refugees. Follow your heart’s desire. . .
