REFUGEES

The picture shows my great-grandfather side by side with his brothers, all refugees fresh from Iran.
While in Denmark recently, a taxi driver helpfully informed us that "the refugees ruined Sweden." What he said as pragmatic fact struck me as a personal rejection of my own people. It ultimately led me to ask, "At what cost does the happiest place in the world maintain itself?"
