FOWC with Fandango — Refugee

FOWC

It’s September 26, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “refugee.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    the plight of a refugee
    travelling miles on a dinghy
    in rough seas
    only to be turned away
    at the shore
    too too sad

    A refugee never asked to be one. If he had control over things and nature, he would choose over and over again to be in his homeland

    I’ll keep it simple toda and just guide you to my other blog: https://eklastic.wordpress.com/
    I started it when in 2015 Germany took in 1 Million refugees, mainly from Syria and Afghanistan. They were distributed to all regions in Germany, our town of just over 40,000 inhabitants took in a good 1000 people in the autumn months of this year. We had welcome meetings, we organised tours in our town, we showed the new arrivals how to shop for themselves etc. And most of all: every town, every school was looking for German teachers. This is how I started as a volunteer German teacher. I stuck with it and today I am being paid for teaching, still teaching adults to speak and write in German. The first blog entries are more interesting than later ones, I guess, because it was an exciting time – for the country, for the refugees and for me, learning how to teach illiterates in a learning by doing process.
