What We Missed: Merry Christmas, Joyful Stories 2011

When Atlas asked Santa how he supported a borderless world, he not only showed us from where he hailed (the North Pole) but he also shared how he spreads joy and cheer to every person, no matter their “status” or country of origin or what papers they can provide (hey, all you need’s a chimney!)

So for this Sunday’s What We Missed we’re sharing some  heartwarming stories of 2011 involving immigrant’s in the U.S. and beyond. Enjoy and spread the love today!

Three boys banded together in the wake of Arizona’s SB 1070.

Dozens looked past the prejudice  and a nine digit number to help foster a leading journalist in the U.S.

The New York Dream Act was introduced.

Guess What? ANYONE can work hard, succeed, and contribute to our society, after all, isn’t that what America is all about?

We love this school (even if we don’t love NPR’s verbiage in describing it!)

Journalists are FINALLY beginning to drop the I-word. (Come on NYTimes, we know you can do it!)

A town puts out billboards showing their support of immigrants. Awesome.

A city seeks to turn their location into a safe-haven for us all.

And finally, check our post from last week about the most inspiring trailer for a documentary we’ve seen this year.

Happy holidays to you and yours!

xoxo
