Hollow.

I get sent an ‘Inspiring quote of the day’ to my inbox. Quite often I ignore it. Today’s offering caught my eye.

“Freedom is not overcoming what you think stands in your way. It is understanding that what is in your way is part of the way.”

You see our friend Alex, part of our gathered family – honest and honourable; today after ‘signing on’ with the Home Office has been shipped off south and then who knows where!

He is being taken to detention centre in Oxford- we collected his meagre belongings. Where is the balance of asylum and what he gave to us?

He leaves us hollow.
