A Slice of Burundian Life

Thanks to the Chaffins for sending us this link.  This is a story of a grandmother and grandson who were Burundian refugees during the war and were resettled in Chattanooga, TN, in 2007.  It's a bit long, but it paints well the pictures of their lives and some of their issues.  The first video is a nice slide show of rural Burundian life.  I was unaware of the henna tattoos, so that's fun.  All in all, it's a good reminder for Americans with regards to caring for the immigrants who are all around you, though often invisible.

The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born.  Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt.  I am the LORD your God.  - Leviticus 19:34
