You did it! You made it here. Your arrival marks the end of journey you made in search of a better life. I hope you find it here. It might not seem like it now, but there are people here that want you to succeed. They want you to find peace, raise your family and live the life you dreamed you’d have when you made that seemingly never-ending journey. Although we might never meet, I am just one such person.
I wish you a happy, healthy life. I wish for you to feel safe, loved and protected in this country of ours. You need just ask and you will find people to help you, people who will go above and beyond. Slowly and surely you will integrate into this multicultural community. You will make friends, find a job, have a place to call your own. Give it time – it will happen.
Don’t ever be afraid to ask for help – we welcome you here, your presence adds to our story and makes us all better people. Rest now, the hardest part is over. You made it here. You are a survivor. You can do anything.
