VOICES FROM THE FIELDTHE IRC BLOG
Quoted: Iraqi refugees in Arizona
December 23, 2010 by The IRC
“If there’s a common thread to these Iraqis in Phoenix, it’s their stories of survival during the war. And now, their stories are of economic survival. Their American neighbors are also preoccupied with their own recent stories of economic survival. But Hazem Taee of the IRC says those neighbors should remember something he and the Iraqis now know. It’s a simple truth for Taee. ‘Life is very beautiful here.’ ”
- Marco Werman, anchor of PRI's The World. He recently traveled to Phoenix, Arizona, to meet refugees from the war in Iraq, and to find out how their settling in process is going in the midst of the recession. Read and listen to the story.
