As we embrace a new year, please take a moment with me to remember all of those forced from their homes, their villages, and their countries who are embracing new lives as refugees.// Today I think of my friend Jabralla who taught me more than anybody else about what it means to be a refugee in Yida, South Sudan. As South Sudan remains embroiled in violence, on the verge of civil war, Nuban refugees from Sudan were forced to make an impossible decision between returning home to "the bombs of Sudan" or remain with "the bullets of South Sudan."// I don't know where Jabralla is or what he and his family decided to do. With no way to reach him, I must trust that his endless supply of resilience has helped keep him and his loved ones safe. // I post this in Jabralla's name in honor of the resilience of the millions of people displaced around the world today. May 2014 bring you HOME.
