Have you ever had to flee a country?
I suppose the topic of this thread caught my attention because it affected me personally. No, I have never had to flee a country, but I was recently in Lebanon not long after Hezbollah battled with Israel. While it was quiet and I had a nice time while I was there, I could not help but think in the back of my mind that I was indeed in the Middle East and that fighting could erupt, even during the 36 hours that I was there.
Anyway, enough about me. For whatever reason, such as a conflict, a political uprising or a natural disaster, for example, Have you ever had to flee a country?
