There is a time for departure even when there’s no certain place to go! Tennessee Williams

This quote ties in a bit with yesterday’s one: there are times when you simply have to leave. It may be a person or a job or any other situation that are slowly poising you. It is not easy, but you owe it to yourself to try a different path, even if you are not sure of where it may lead you. Be brave and take the leap: it will be worth it.

Reading this quote, I also think about all the millions of people that courageously left their hometown and embarked in a difficult journey towards the unknown. Let’s try to imagine the desperation that lead them to take this step, and let’s show compassion to our fellow human beings, instead of closing our eyes, hiding behind a wall.

This op-ed from the New York Times try to humanize the ongoing crisis: in this specific article, it is about the children from Syria, but it could apply to all forced migrants, including the children of the “caravan”, still shamefully separated from their families. It is a difficult read, but worth it.
