The Ripples are Real

This blog was originally posted on Little Ripples by Felicia Lee. 

My eyes filled up with tears today. Now, don’t go feeling bummed out yet. I wasn’t on the verge of crying because I was having a moment of despondency over the “plight of refugees,” or so the oft-used phrase goes. This isn’t going to be that kind of blog entry. The tears I had were the kind that come from being carried to a place of pride and confidence, through experiencing what our refugee friends are affecting in the lives of young children.
