What is this solving?
Running away from your problem(s), that solves nothing, wouldn’t you agree? We’ve all been told that, in this part of the world anyway from either our parents, counselors or a shrink, someone. The problem will still be there, unless you face the root of it, and counter act…..it doesn’t go away. Running may be an escape a temporary escape, but the issue, the problem can often follow you. You may think you are going to a better place. Have you? Are you, in a better place if the memories haunt you?
Problems can not go away until you face them, activate a plan and eliminate the roadblock.
Refugees, immigrants, illegal possibly legal, what do they solve? Freedom? Do they really? Are they not haunted by their past? Escaping to a better place, that is becoming more difficult to find. I do not want to sound like I have a cold heart. Not everyone is running to escape, some just choose to make a better life; where there is greater opportunity. But you walk away from something, someone or somewhere you no longer want to be.
We are all different, different skin, language, experiences, different ideals, governments and cultures. We have been separated by oceans, borders and yes even walls. Sometimes we are a good mix, but too often we are not. Too much influence from one on another can cause more PROBLEMS, when there can be so much misunderstanding.
I am not saying we should be isolationists. Are Syrian refugees solving their problems by going to another country, wherever that country may be? Or are they just transferring their problems from one place to another. Aren’t other problems created? Terrorists, posing as refugees may have the most to gain.
I am certain this is an age-old question, that will never truly be answered. I was just sitting here with a random thought. What are we achieving with all this mass human relocation?
Don’t look to this for your answer!
