Buffalo, my hometown, has welcomed refugees from war-torn countries with open arms proving once again why we are called the City of Good Neighbors.

Via PBS News Hour:

"Refugees arriving in upstate New York in recent years have increasingly come from active conflict zones, including Syria and Iraq -- many fleeing with injuries of war and deep emotional scars. As the refugee populations in places like Buffalo change, the health care systems and cultures of U.S. cities welcoming these populations have been changing, too.
