“Welcome to My House”, a collaboration between non profit Voices of the Children and band Luc and the Lovingtons, features American teens and Syrian refugee youth singing a cross-cultural message of joy, love and peace. The video was filmed on site at the Za’atari Refugee Camp and Wadi Rum in Jordan as well as in the Skagit Valley of Washington State, USA. Most of the youth, participants and locations featured in the video were a part of a greater on-going program created by Voices of the Children which provides free arts classes and cross cultural collaborations between Syrian and American teens.

    The love and purity on the children's faces brought me to tears. I live in Turkey and have good Syrian friends. Although I would miss them, I hope one day they can go back and rebuild their lives. Allah bless all those afflicted by war.

    For sixty years I have lived in Skagit Valley and loved this place. Mt. Erie is a most special place. My parents were immigrants. Many of the students pictured in the video are my current students. Anything Jason Mraz puts his stamp of approval on is celebratory. Everything about this video inspires me to continue to connect to Oneness and the Divine. Children of war and children of toxic stress can come together and share joy and love and creativity...everywhere.

    I am so thankful to experience this video tonight. We had sad news of a deportation of a beautiful being tonight. He is 18 and being sent back to violence in a country he has not lived in since he was 12. May blessings be sent to him from this community and may we all imagine joy, peace and love in all our houses throughout the world.

    I love the song, and the message, but it would be really great if more of the actual reality of what it is truly like being in a refugege camp is like, it's nice to see kids having fun, but i think more powerful would also be how incredibly challenging it is to be in a camp. Too many Americans already believe it is no hardship to be there and have little understanding of the sacrifices made not just for a few months, but for decades. how great if we opened more of our homes for real here. Whew. An apologies, I usually post super positive on here, but knowing the reality of camps from friends working there long term as psychologists, this puts a happy joy spin on a very difficult life. Hugs all around. i do thank you for sharing joy, especially needed in camps.

  • BELINDA
