Typical day in life of an asylum seeker:
I wake up at 6am, that is if I manage to catch some sleep and not stay awake till 3am
2. Say my prayers
3. 6:45am I prepare the kids lunch
4. I wake the kids up at 7:30am and get them ready for school
5. The kids leave at 8:30am
6. I tidy up the house, do the dishes if any, do the laundry if any
7. 9:30am, I have my bath if I feel up to it
8. That's it, I lie down on my bed and think about my life, I cry, I cry and cry even more
9. I come on social media to catch up on what's going on
10. 1:50pm, I prepare lunch for my 6yr old who gets back at 2:05pm
11. 2:45pm I prepare lunch for the 2 older ones who gets back at 3:05pm
12: 3:30pm we do their school homework
12: I go back to thinking my life away and settling incessant fight
13. 6pm I prepare dinner

When someone is fleeing war or torture or human rights abuses, the first and foremost duty of humanity is to open our doors to refugees. No good to let people die at our doorsteps while we discuss where and how #AsylumSeekers should be hosted.
