PITTSBURGH’S WORLD REFUGEE DAY CELEBRATION 2016

 

"Refugees are people like anyone else, like you and me. They led ordinary lives before becoming displaced, and their biggest dream is to be able to live normally again. On this World Refugee Day, let us recall our common humanity, celebrate tolerance and diversity and open our hearts to refugees everywhere." --- Ban Ki-moon
