Canadian generosity toward ordinary people

My Canadian daughter-in-law, Denise Kenney, was involved in the creation of a film interviewing several Syrian Refugee families living in Kelowna, British Columbia, where she and her (also my) family live.

I found this film to be immensely interesting, as well as heartbreaking. Being able to sit vicariously in a living room with people whose lives have completely turned upside down is something most of us don't have the opportunity to do. If you have forty minutes, this is a way to discover information not just about refugees, but about yourself, too. I guarantee one thing: watching this film will have you assessing your own capacity for compassion and that of your government, as well.

Denise has given me permission to put the link on my blog and encourages anyone who wants to share it to do so.
