Feeling humbled …

I left politics way, way behind me as a tear fell down my cheek on reading a rather amazing story.

The hero of it? Lisa Campbell, an American grandmother to six.

So I’m taking my step into 2018 with her words in my heart:

“I hope that my legacy here is that the people that I have touched, the refugees or the Greek people, will always remember that I cared about them. That they were special and important. That they were worthy of that care.

My husband asks me: “What are you going to do when you go home? You’ve been the mother to more than 2,000 people that have come through this camp.”

I’m going to stand as a witness. I’m going to talk about what has happened here. I’m going to try to make people understand that we are all human beings.”

Happy New Year Mrs Campbell. Thank you.
