I am 17 years old. I am a boy who was born into a refugee family. My parents came here from a war torn country. I have always been taught that everyone should be accepted so I offer love and support for the hate that you have gotten because no one deserves to be hated or threatened or feel unwelcome because in this county everyone should feel welcome and safe.
