I read the story on the Facebook page humans of New York. I was inspired and shocked because despite the fact that he was left with nothing but a stomach cancer, his only demand is to keep inventing and make the world a better place. It is appealing to me as I found myself motivated. I don't consider myself a refugee in Lebanon as I am seeking my education there but what I know for sure is that I am privileged and blessed for being able to study what I am passionate about without struggling. if a psychologically traumatized person like the scientist with everything he went through can fine hope and persist on making the best of his time inventing, I can achieve and be whoever I want to be, nothing is impossible. The problem posed here is the huge potentials lost. And the problem is not the war or being a refugee. The problem is the mistreatment and the inhuman predisposed thoughts about refugees. Making up a solution is not that hard. Through our voices and communion we can help Edward Norton did!
