"These images represent the universal language of uncertainty, hope, and anxiety any child or adult would have of being uprooted by war, poverty, or the promise of a better life in a new country.? Leaving everything you knew behind opens the door for the promise of tomorrow.? We all have something to contribute to society-we all need to ensure refugees flourish in whichever country the live in. My family were refugees of World War I and these images show refugees from that era." - Mark Forton
