let the people dance

The photograph above is another shot from the event I attended in Berlin to welcome refugees in the Fall.

After the event I visited the Berlin Jewish Museum and came across the picture (on the left) of Jewish people dancing on a ship as they escaped Hitler in the 1930s. A different people, a different time, but the same dance. Other things are the same too, today we have the same opposition to refugees as we had back in the 1930s and 1940s, and we know how that turned out, but seems that many have forgot.

I think we all need to say "refugees are welcome here,"Canada is doing some but could do more. For goodness sake, open borders, let people dance, just like I saw in Berlin #RefugeesWelcomeHere #RefugeesWelcome.
