World Refugee Day and refugees from @Bhutan

A flurry of stories today from all manner of local communities that are home to refugees, many of Nepali origin displaced from Bhutan. Saturday was World Refugee Day and the implication of these resettlements is extraordinary.

Lower Paxton Township, Daupin County, PA being one of them….. Cincinnati another, Grand Rapids yet another. I look forward to finding ways to tell this story.
