I’m sorry that what I taught you about human rights and civil rights can provide no comfort or protection from the ignorance and fear that fuels the hate you experience daily.

You have quite an insightful mind so I would not be surprised if you wonder at the irony of the upcoming Christmas celebrations when there will be images of Mary everywhere.

Home, by Warsan Shire 

no one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark.

you only run for the border
when you see the whole city 
running as well.

your neighbours running faster 
than you, the boy you went to school with
who kissed you dizzy behind 
the old tin factory is
holding a gun bigger than his body,
you only leave home
when home won't let you stay.

no one would leave home unless home 
chased you, fire under feet, 
hot blood in your belly.
Somali-British poet Warsan Shire's meditation on what it means to be a refugee.

" People from around the world are singing the praises of an Ottawa-area children's choir after their performance of a traditional Arabic song exploded on YouTube this weekend.

In the video, posted earlier this week, about 200 schoolchildren perform a choral version of "Tala' al-Badru 'Alayna," a song that was purportedly sung to the Prophet Muhammad.
An Ottawa children's choir performance of a traditional Arabic song has people from across the world singing its praises.

I got a goat for Christmas once. It came with a bottle of wine. I enjoyed the wine but didn’t actually see the goat because it was sent on my behalf to a family who really needed its milk to survive. I thought about the family and the goat while listening…
