What Choice do they have?

Living a privileged life in a peaceful Western country, I don’t have to worry about my family’s safety. The world’s 65 million refugees aren’t so lucky. In the West, most of us have more than we need, but unfortunately we don’t seem to want to share our good fortune.

My suitcase represents the little that refugees are able to take with them when they flee. The machine-embroidered words and colored tulle represent the sea they often have to cross and what they have to leave behind: home, land, friends, family, jobs, competence, stability, history, culture, dreams, and identity. What choice do they have?
