Dear Mr. Hamad, AHRC Executive Director:
Words can neither qualify nor quantify my feelings. I am so impressed and flattered with the warm welcome I received during my visit to Michigan, and my presentation at AHRC event. I heartily thank you, Dr. Opada Alzohaili, AHRC Board’s President and the AHRC board members for giving me the chance to be with you and for making my visit to Michigan memorable and enjoyable. I feel pride and gratitude for the elite, wonderful and energized audience; you represent the best of America, and being the keynote speaker in that event, has been one of the greatest honors of my life.
Now, I returned back to Jordan to continue my mission in helping helpless refugees, and wish I had the chance to stay longer in the US to deliver more speeches about the suffering of the refugees to raise awareness about their problems and needs, but, job constraints prevented me from doing so.
I think refugee crisis is not about one person, one country, or even one talk. It is about millions of people from all parts of world who were forced to flee their own countries because of war, violence, or fear of persecution, and are in search of protection, food, water, health care, decent work, and education. During the refugee crisis, we have seen the world more divided than we ever thought about how to handle this problem, and how to help those in dire need.Â I truly believe that open minded people, like you, who do not label people based on their ethnicity, or nationality, and value the meaning of humanity, can create the difference.
I cherish every minute I spent in Dearborn, and wish our humanitarian efforts not to yield. I am more than happy if you would like to contact me concerning issues pertain to Syrian, Iraqi, Yemeni and Palestinian refugees. As Syrian, I can go in more in depth analysis and discussion about the challenges, and the most pressing issues, that face Syrian refugees.
