    Deirdre, thank you so much for sharing this story! Like you, I too listen to NPR everyday and am moved by the stories. But then, the day goes on. For me, that day involves working for USA for UNHCR, so I do spend much of my time thinking about refugees. But even in my position, it can be easy to sometimes get removed from the human face of things in the shuffle of everyday tasks. I have to say that interacting with the Blue Key Champions on social media and reading all of your posts has really helped me stay centered and remind me why I am so passionate about this job and this agency. Thank you.

    Hi Caitlin! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment and share your thoughts. And, it’s always great to meet another NPR listener. I agree, during the course of a busy day it’s easy to get removed from the human faces, the people and the issues. I think it’s wonderful how USA for UNHCR has found a way to keep people aware and feeling connected. I love to hear that you are so passionate, and it really shows in the efforts of your agency 🙂
