This idea is really neat. The bloggers of Bloggers Unite have created what is the only global blog initiative designed to harness expression in support of human rights and issues in need of highlight. Refugees United is the only online, highly secure and anonymous possibility of refugees to reconnect with family. This is important, no?

The way I see it, refugees are victims or sufferers of torture. A refugees is said to be someone with a well-founded fear of persecution on the basis of his or her race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion. These people have fled their home country and are unable or unwilling to return. Refugees are forced from their countries by war, civil conflict, political strife or gross human rights abuses.

We, as caring individuals, can take a STAND to assist these scared and defenseless people. Just educate yourself, and educate others. All it really takes is a simple conversation, or an email. You would be surprised at the vast amounts of people who don't have a clue about the atrocities that are happening in places like Burma or Sudan.

The world is getting smaller due to globalization and we can use that to our advantage. Spread the word and help out refugees!
