Lawn Of School For Refugees Covered With Welcome Signs

After President Trump’s executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days, neighbors of the International Community School in Decatur, Georgia, wanted to show their support to students and their families. The public charter school “seeks out and teaches” refugee and immigrant children and when they showed up for school Monday morning, they were greeted with a lawn full of positive signs, welcoming them with messages like “You’re home,” and “We’re glad you’re here.”

“It restores some of my faith in humanity,” says Danny Vincent, a mother who lives in the area. “It’s a reminder that that’s where this change has to happen. And that’s where we could do the most good, by taking care of the people around us.”

Vincent saw a post on a neighborhood Facebook page of a sign someone made and placed in the school yard. It inspired her to get her eight-year-old daughter and friends involved to make more signs of support for the students. By Monday morning, there were 40 or 50 signs lining the walkway to the school. And that’s definitely a good sign!
