!! OMG, how inspiring: Syrian man in Germany helps other refugees cross the ocean over the phone !!

This man’s dedication and resourcefulness are incredible.

From the Guardian story:

Mohammed Abu Amar runs a makeshift 24-hour helpline from his flat in Hamburg, guiding scared refugees fleeing the violence in Syria across the water to Europe. Despite losing the use of both legs in a shelling in Damascus in the early days of the conflict, Abu Amar made the crossing with his family in 2013. He subsequently found his calling, being constantly available on the phone for his fellow Syrians making the same perilous journey.

!! OMG, quote of the day: Oprah Winfrey post-election, ‘Hope is still alive.’ !!

In an interview with the Associated Press, Oprah has said “Hope is still alive” after Obama said he was encouraged by Trump’s willingness to work with his team during the transition of power. The meeting between Obama and Trump lasted nearly 90 minutes.

“I could sense, maybe I’m wrong, but I could sense from Donald Trump’s body language even when he came out for the acceptance speech, that brotha has been humbled by this world thing,” she said. “I think it’s a humbling process that now you literally have the weight of the world on your shoulders.”

We hope to the Lord baby Jesus that Miss O is right, and her observations are correct. If anyone can speak words of hope these days, it’s Mama O! (But just in case …did anyone check to make sure that Opes wasn’t referring American goalie, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and World Cup champion Hope Solo?)
