I’m in San Antonio which is taking in about 50,000 refugees.
I was volunteering down at the former Air Force base/processing center that San Antonio is using for the refugees and some of these stories are really incredible.
What I am most impressed about however, is the attitude and disposition of a lot of these patients I saw. I cannot believe their patience and how, not upbeat, but “un-defeated,” if that’s a word, many of them are.
“How are you today, sir?”“I’m pretty good. How are you? You been here long?”
Who has just lost everything and stepped off the bus into a new, strange city and is concerned with the state of a volunteer? Pretty humbling.
