Rumble: How Does It Feel To Become a Refugee?

In this post, Riverbend describes how it feels to leave Iraq, to leave her home, and to become a refugee. An excerpt:

"We were all refugees- rich or poor. And refugees all look the same- there’s a unique expression you’ll find on their faces- relief, mixed with sorrow, tinged with apprehension. The faces almost all look the same.The first minutes after passing the border were overwhelming. Overwhelming relief and overwhelming sadness… How is it that only a stretch of several kilometers and maybe twenty minutes, so firmly segregates life from death?"


Let us wish her well.
