The Mosaic of Our Future

Mosaic Meme

"It has been one year since the refugee crisis landed on our doorstep here in Germany with the suddenness of a tsunami. In these last twelve months my horizons have been stretched, my heart pulled, my life lit up and my perspective forever changed. I now consider many beautiful men, women and children, whom I ordinarily should never have met, to be some of my closest friends. But these times are anything but ordinary...never before in history has the world been in such flux.

"Their world was shattered, and the pieces are being sprinkled like some new mosaic across ours. It is up to each one of us to determine what our new shared world picture will look like. Peaceful or in turmoil. Accepting and open or discriminating and closed. Integrated and colorful or segregated and black and white.

"Whatever we decide, their future is our future. Their story is our story."

- Trisha Leimer, TSOS President, quoted in November 2016.
