“We all have heard and seen in people in Syria. The refugee crisis has taken way too many lives. While feeling bad about the situation and discussing about it what most of us can do, there are a few other things we can do to provide help.
“This is how the world changes. When we live and study with one another – whether we are from Chicago or from far away countries, what begins to happen is that we are changed; our world “becomes more personal and ‘others’ become like family” as it were.
The issues that too often separate us become unified for us because this is no longer about another neighborhood, city or country but the home and families of my and our friends.
We are grateful for the way the Illinois Tech community, our new friends across Chicago and those we have yet to meet have come together in support of children, women and men of Syria.”
