This Rana. She has a twin sister named Lama and they, like the other children and teens want to go back to school. Rana wants to be a journalist and Lama wants to be an eye doctor.
Each day I spent here at #Idomeni #Eidomeni it was and still is hard to believe what I saw and heard. And just like Lesvos, there's such a disconnect between the beauty of the location and the horrible situation and conditions at the location. What is different is that when they arrived on Lesvos, Chios, Samos, etc, they had hopes and dreams for a better future. At Idomeni, I saw in the eyes of many people that they have lost hope. These people are no different than you or I. I've spent a lot of time speaking with different individuals of all ages, drank tea and was served meals by people who have lost nearly everything yet are still willing to share what little they have. Just open the f'n borders and help these humans regain their dignity. Their cities and towns and homes have been destroyed and they have nothing to go back to. #ThinkAboutThat
