The People Concerned (2)

Leaving one’s family and friends to go away to another country does not come easily. A migrant lost part of his or her identity the day they said goodbye to their loved ones and move on to a new country. It does not matter whether they are people of colour or white. Everything changes the day they leave home. They have no idea when they will see their parents or whether the latter will still be alive when they have the opportunity to visit their country of origin.

Abraham obeyed God and left Haran. He did not complain but chose to follow and moved with his wife, Sarah. Although, the Bible never said Abram was lonely. Still, he was because he was human.

Migrants are one of the people concerned. No one can tell their stories that are full of anxiety, rejection, stigmatisation and exclusion.

Before pointing accusing at these migrants and blaming them for taking away your jobs, it’s better to compare oneself to them
