This is a very powerful book. By an extraordinary woman. If you haven't read it yet. Read it. Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
I've been pondering. Lately. How none of us. No matter how frequently we visit other countries. And have the privilege of being in villages or refugee camps. Really know what it's like to BE in that place. With its challenges. And nowhere else to go.
I do not know what it's like to not know if there will be food for my family. I do not know what it is like to live behind closed doors or invisible in a burqa. I do not know what it is like to leave everything I have behind.
I do not know.
