Happy New Year

|A REMINDER OF THE KINDNESS WE SHOULD ALWAYS EXTEND TO THOSE SEEKING A REFUGE ON OUR 'FREE' SOILS. WE HARDLY KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH AND IT IS OUR DUTY TO LET THEM KNOW...THAT WE CARE. WE MAY NOT HAVE THE MONETARY MEANS BUT WE CERTAINLY HAVE THE ABILITY...THE OBLIGATION...TO GENUINELY RESPECT AND LOVE ALL MANKIND. WELL DONE, KAY AND THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

|This is piercingly observant and written with great sensitivity.

|Account of a soul in transportation away from perhaps political oppression, or religious persecution. For another human being, the author, to even wonder these things about this refugee shows such human compassion and tenderness for the cerebrally-shaken. This is a very mindful essay on the condition of society. This piece reminds me so much of the "blood diamond" wars in Angola where arms and legs are hacked off by militant leaders. Powerful and taps into the cultural pulse, Kay...be well.

|"..for his eyes are distant
and they stare at space..."
i've seen those eyes, Kay, over and over
and no matter how often i see them my heart
is troubled..we just are not doing things right,
we're not..there are too many victims;
powerful and moving work and very real indeed

|This is very beautiful and touching. Sometimes it takes a generation for the healing to happen. Your country is indeed generous to allow refugees. Unfortunately, many refugees can never go back and have them make their sheltering country their home.

|I agree with Felix, prejudicial or not.
Your poem was masterful.
|Reviewed by John Domino
|Wow! Great poetic expression! This is the cry for someone who is lost, hurt and blind to the beauty that is in this moment in time. If you watched the movie, "The Peaceful Warrior" it portrays the importance of being in the moment. It's not always easy to focus on when your mind is preoccupied with other stuff but it's worth a try.|

|You expressed yourself so well here Kay that yes I could see the mans emotions as if looking at him myself. It is also very real for when you think about it weren't our descendents all refuges at one point or another. The sad part is so many of the refuges and immigrants today refuse to embrace our society, morals, values and language and instead insist the majority transform or bend our own ways to accomadate theirs. Hope I don't sound prejudicial here but that is my observation. Great writing Kay.
