We All Could Be Refugees

I once worked in a refugee camp in Azer­bai­jan on an edu­ca­tion project. The prin­ci­pal of their makeshift school told me one day he was a prin­ci­pal in a large school with one hun­dred staff. Days lat­er he was in a camp strug­gling to set up some sem­blance of a school with a hand­ful of teach­ers. He did not plan on being a refugee. Yet, there he was. He could be me. They could be us. Mil­lions and mil­lions of refugees, thrown from their homes by war. Why?
