Families, like trees, grow and develop with their surroundings. Seeds
are blown by the wind and new trees are born elsewhere. Roots sink into
the ground from which the new tree draws life. Children, like branches,
stretch out. Families and trees have similar destinies (Mirella
Ricciardi, African Saga)
In this time of unprecedented political, economic, and climate crises, every one of us may be a migrant at some point in our lives.
