How Does It Feel to Lose Your Home and Leave Everything Behind?

Afghan Refugees, just like, other Refugees in the world had to leave everything behind and flee to US to find a safe home here. Trauma after trauma! 

Trauma of war, trauma of leaving their homes behind and trauma of coming to a new country where they have to now work very hard to make a living and spend a peaceful life. 

I have spoken with many newly arrived refugees and I heard one thing in common. They can’t sleep at night. Most of the newly arrived refugees are young men and women who were born right around year 2000 and 2001, which means they have witnessed war throughout their life. They are all suffering from trauma and fear. They do not know what it is like to be at peace and not be a part of the war. They are trying to build a new life here in US but they have a long way to go.
