Imagine. I walk-you donate-they live.

Imagine,
a stranger knocking on your door

Imagine,
you meet eyes filled with emptiness 

Imagine,
you don’t know anything

Imagine,
you would smile

Imagine,
you would ask nothing

Imagine,
you would simply say welcome

Imagine,
you would feel love

Imagine,
you would show a path

Imagine,
you would offer perspective

Imagine,
You would share the abundance of comfort you are bathing in

 

Now imagine, You
are the stranger knocking on that door

Imagine,
you meet fear in the eyes behind that window

Imagine,
the door to remain closed

Imagine,
no smile, no welcome, no perspective, no answers, no love, nobody.

Imagine,
You would see yourself

And all you have is fear,
While all you had is love.


SHOW LOVE
As many of my friends know, I have a problem with calling refugees a problem. I cannot wrap my head around the inhumane consequences of borders, intollerance, greed. My heart hurts when people don't understand that our place of birth and therewith our access to safety, health or even life, is simply a matter of luck or bad luck.

That's a lot of I - but this is not about me. September 11-12th I will walk 40km for emergency aid to refugees around the world - and this very small gesture, is an invitation to you to donate whatever you feel is right, to support people that know no safe home, live in fear, confronted with closed doors, separated from the right to live.  #NvdV21
