    I don't know if anyone knows but tomorrow June 20th is World Refugee Day. Even if you don't do anything on this day at least think or send a prayer (for those of you religious) to those refugees around the world.

    There's a very short video from Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie:
    YouTube - unhcr's Channel
    You can also go to the website below to see how facebook is helping if you use facebook:
    UNHCR - World Refugee Day: Giving refugees a hand on Facebook
    Or the main site for UNHCR and WRD:
    World Refugee Day | UNHCR
    But in all remember how so very very blessed you are that you live in America and while we are here, think how many in need there are all over the world.

    thanks for posting this calia.

    my family and i were refugees...we escaped vietnam by boat and ended up in a tha refugee camp. it was a rough start for me as a baby (no healthcare, nutrition)...all my finger and toenails fell off...it must have been so hard for my parents (i now know how difficult since i am now a parents...shoot i freak when jack has a runny nose or funny poop).

    every day we are so grateful for our lives and i am especially grateful and proud of my parents for taking the risk to escape vietnam and work their butts off in the US to give us such a happy childhood and so much opportunity.

          Actually I was talking about the thread, thats what I missed yesterday. June 20th is today, WRD...got it!

          Don't fret if you don't get the response you were hoping for, after all this is the best destination wedding forum not the best socially conscious forum. It's happened to me too. You tried to put it out there and that's all you can do. At least 2 of us heard you :)
