Refugee Relief Presentation Thank Yous

Refugee Relief Fireside Melissa

Their Story is Our Story information evening served as the grand finale to a densely-packed USA visit. From last weekend spent at my church's biannual conference, throughout five university lectures I was invited to give, interspersed with time spent with my three university kids Claire, Alessandro and Dalton, it was all a joy. Thank you Jacqueline White for hosting a successful gathering, and Elizabeth Benson, Twila Davis Bird, Garrett Wesley Gibbons, Trisha Bird Leimer, Lindsay Allen Silsby and Morgan Rhys Gibbons, all inspiring co-members of TSOS Refugees, for the artistry, intelligence, and soulfulness which hold this work aloft. And thank you to all of our heroic Syrian, Afghan, Iraqi and Iranian friends. We care deeply about you and your families and want the world to know you as we do.

Why celebrate World Refugee Day?

To me, the label “refugee” is a badge of honor. I invite you to honor and celebrate refugees and welcomers with me this month and to meet some of these heroes at TSOS's Virtual World Refugee Day event on 17 June.
