A Life of Opportunity

November 26, 2013

The stories in this newsletter all demonstrate the power of opportunity, of seizing the moment when it presents itself. In Lexington, Kentucky, refugees are realizing the opportunity represented by a new job. In Tucson, Arizona, an Episcopal school is extending the opportunity for a stellar education to a group of refugee students, and entire families are benefiting. And in communities around the United States, civic and economic leaders are finding that welcoming refugees and immigrants offers an opportunity for community prosperity that perhaps went unrecognized in the past. When you speak with refugees living in the U.S., they often refer to the United States as the Land of Opportunity – the country that gave them a new start. Together, we can work to keep that opportunity alive.
