I am helping create a theatre piece inspired by the stories of women refugees from all over the world.
I don't want to preach only to the choir. I want to speak to people who may be fearful refugees, some or all of them refugees. I want to understand their point of view, and for them to feel heard so it's a dialogue, not a lecture.
But I live in a bubble - liberal, arty, New York City. It feels like everybody sings the same tune.
If you have fears or frustrations about letting refugees into our country - or the amount of money that helping them consumes around the world, or whatever - please share them. If you want to remain anonymous, fine. Or say, "I have a friend..." Or send links to chat rooms or forums that express views you share.
