Humans of New York has been a must-read website of mine for a long time now. The perspectives it gives you about the inner lives of strangers is incredible.
The current refugee crisis is an ocean away, and unfortunately, the humanity of those hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants often gets lost in the media stories we see on TV and in the news.
Brandon Stanton's photographs of and quotes from people he met in Greece are incredible, and the posts are both moving and so important for people to read, to help them comprehend the reality of refugees seeking asylum in countries that are rejecting them.
Here are three of the recent migrant posts:
- "There is no security in Baghdad ..."
- "They fired rockets from a mountain near our house ..."
- “My husband and I sold everything we had to afford the journey ..."
