Yes, My Relatives Were Syrian Refugees

Did you know that MY family … were Syrian immigrants? It is true. My grandfather and his family came here from Syria…yes, Syria. They had to make the stop in Ellis Island and do all the things necessary to become citizens … and they did. Then my grandpa grew-up, married and had a slew of children, one of which was my father … and here I am.

So … tell me … what is the real difference between Syrian refugees then and now?

I’ll tell you what the difference is.

Your attitude.

Ignore the propaganda.


Now it's my turn to listen...
