Faith in Humanity

Faith in Humanity

I always have faith in humanity, but sometimes, it is good to have that faith reconfirmed: A (Syrian?) refugee in Turkey, asking for asylum of Ecuador via Twitter, gets a response from the President Raffaele Correa himself who forwards it to his chancellery. It looks hopeful, and that, sometimes, is all we need, hope.

This reminds me of the

Vietnamese Boat People

Between 1975 and 1976, Canada admitted 5,608 Vietnamese immigrants. In 1979 and 1980, another 50,000 people from Vietnam, refugees who later became known as the “Boat People,” settled in Canada.”
Welcomed to Canada under the leadership of Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, they integrated into Canadian society and now are a vibrant part of our history, with nearly 200,000 people living in communities that never saw Vietnamese before.
And now his son, Justin Trudeau, elected less than a month ago, has vowed to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees before years end. Our private carrier Air Canada has offered to ferry ALL of them, and homes and places for them to stay have been offered all over this wonderful land of ours.
I will always have faith in the goodness of people.
