A Refugee Child Gives Thanks

Symbol of freedom; symbol of hope.
Butterfly stamp adds a dash of color and symbolizes freedom and hope.

I Give Thanks

I give thanks to God




To be here.

I want God to help me

            With my life

With my childhood.

Help my parents

Help my family

Help me to be




Written by a child inside an immigrant family detention center.

I want to be someone in life...
A child uses stencils with watercolors and stamps to express her poetic reflection “I Give Thanks.”
