A Reason to Live


A Reason to Live is a collection of stories intended to allow us to walk in the foot steps of those who have come from refugee and asylum seekers backgrounds.

I know that not everyone agrees with me when it comes to refugee and asylum seeker policies…. I know that not everyone shares my ideas on multiculturalism…

I hope however that people can share with me this one belief:

“Everyone is worthy of a chance… Everyone should have the chance to tell their story.”

A Reason to Live

It is because of this that I write, and why I am fighting to make sure that every man, woman and child has a voice and has the opportunity to be heard.

I believe that refugees, asylum seekers and humanitarian entrants are in need of our support, our prayers, our compassion and friendship… they don’t need criticism and prejudice. I have never run from a war, been shot at, seen my children starve, my wife raped or been tortured. If this ever happened to me or my brothers I pray that we would handle it with the level of dignity that so many newly arrived Australians have done.

I urge you all to read A Reason to Live, and to open your hearts to those in need of solace.
