Four police officers were walking behind me when Aliou decided to shout and lunge at the camera. Immediately startled, once they regained their composure they joined us in laughing at the absurdity of life.
“What I have learned about life is that life needs less heat but more light in order to overcome the negative thoughts. In order to achieve this you need to have a good heart, hope, and clear goals. Despite the struggles and experiences which we go through today, I’m quite optimistic about life because these struggles and experiences only keep us strong and motivate us to push hard beyond our dreams. In fact, we are all humans and we all have dreams and goals. All we need is just a chance. A chance at life, a chance at education, and a chance for the future.” Mohammed, Sudanese refugee currently facing possible deportation to an unfamiliar country and uncertain future. We can and must do better. #withrefugees
This is Gasim. Gasim is a refugee from Darfur and he is also one of my students. Like 10s of thousands of other African refugees living in Israel, Gasim now faces possible deportation to a country he has never known and towards a future he has no control over. Instead of allowing him to continue his studies and cultivating one of tomorrow’s potential leaders, we are turning our backs on him. He is not an infiltrator, he is not a murderer, he is not a rapist. Gasim is my friend. We can and must do better.
