You might be unsure if you like me being here but soon I as well will be dreaming in Norwegian.
There are over 65 million forcibly displaced people worldwide. 65 million individuals.
In 2016 12 147 immigrant came to Norway.
Your neighbor’s kid is currently crying because her future is taken away from her.
The house she lived in and felt safe in is no longer her truth.
They came at night to say you’re out.
On the other side of the street a father, a mother and a son has been sailing the seas of Greece for days
They arrived in their new house a couple of days ago
and are the friendliest ones around
They all are allowed to stay
What’s the difference between them and the neighbor girl who was only looking forward to seeing her friends in the morning?
Well soon they’ll be dreaming in Norwegian
Millions of immigrants who wants to be saved.
Try to see the person behind the face. Try to see the kid who got his or her dream shattered when someone bombed their town.

Soon you’ll get new neighbors with different backgrounds than you. Soon they’ll be dreaming in Norwegian.
