I’m so sorry to hear about your struggles. Thank you for your letter, that is so needly written.
Remember, you are a child of God, thát is your identity. And you are very very valuable.
I pray for your safety and the common sense of the European people and leaders.

Dear, I feel so sorry for all your misery in your current life! If I would live in Greece, I would try to come over to you to give you both material and personal support. But I live far away in Holland, on the other side of Europe. I have recently given money to refugee aid organisaitions that are active in Greece. Hopefully, you directly profit from it. Frequently, I feel a little sad because of the huge inequality in Europe of which you are a random victim. Most of all, I hope the Greek authorities will soon give you a license for travelling further to any European country which provides sustainable shelter for you for good! My heart is with you!

How heartbreaking it is to read your story. And what you want and seek for yourself and others is admirabel and beautiful. Never be ashamed for who you are and also in what curcumstances you find yourself. You are a beautiful human being and I wish I’ve met you face to face. I hope and more, pray and pray that things will change. They will change but when.. I pray for you, lovely N. Stay strong and hopefully out of harms way. I understand that you are not safe. I hope you find people where you can feel more protected. It’s so unfair, that you are there and I’m here. I will speak up where I can for you and for everyone with you. And pray to God. To make a change. I hugh you now and I hope you will receive a little strenght from my side. Hold on! Hold on!
I hear you. I see you. People are fighting and pleading for you. You are not forgotten.

I wrote to the Head of Office of the UNHCR, that they should accept you in the Netherlands as an LGBT refugee. I am so sorry she didn’t answer my plea. I included your letter and a photo of the fire where you lost everything except your life. I hope you are well again and that you are coping as before. I send you much love. Stay strong , warm hugs

What a terrible situation. You’ve got such an important mission. I wholeheartedly hope your words and ideas will be heard. Please know you’re worthy and important. It’s shame you’re treated this wat. I can’t vind the words to describe it. I will send your letter to my friends.

I agree completely with your point of view! Of course no one should be judged because of the persons they love. You have the right to be free.
I also work as a teacher, and I hope for you that you will work as a teacher again, some time from now.
I wish you strength and hope,
Warm greetings, Hester (48)
