World Refugee Day 2014

“On World Refugee Day, I call on the international community to intensify efforts to prevent and resolve conflicts, and to help achieve peace and security so that families can be reunited and refugees can return home.” ~ Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

I made this video in 2005 when the refugee situation was pretty dire. Now, nine years later, it has only become more desperate. Syria is emptying by thousands a day and every week there are reports of new horrors in places like the DRC and Sudan.

On this World Refugee Day, I hold fast to the hope of a world at peace and that all will one day have a place to belong.
