Restoring a Welcome for Those in Need of Safety

When former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright passed away just a few months ago, I was reminded of an anecdote she frequently shared. Albright and her family were exiled from Communist Czechoslovakia in the 1940s and spent time in London before resettling in the United States. She stated that her father would compare the sometimes-unpleasant remarks made by people in London about when they would be returning home to the welcome they received in the United States.
