Entry Title: "Uncertain Journeys"
AFTER the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, our resolve to help refugees
should be stronger than ever. As we express our anger and grief,
we must remember that they are fleeing precisely the type of
violence that France experienced that night. Rather than turning
them away, the United States and Europe need to fully commit to
managing their safe passage, screening and settlement, and not
leave it up to the ragtag teams of volunteers who have so far been
stepping in where governments and agencies have failed.
