We need to change the definition of a refugee.

A refugee is a second-class citizen with a number scrawled on your hand or printed on a wristband, who everyone wishes would somehow go away. (Sunday Mail, October, 23, 2016)

“When you get to know us, you’ll see we are not that different. I am not just a number. None of us are.” ( Nujeen:One Girl’s Incredible Journey from War-Torn Syria in a Wheelchair)
