The holiday Groundhog Day, which is today, was once just a simple little tradition where a small town in Pennsylvania pulled a groundhog from its burrow to determine how much longer the winter would last. Totally normal. But thanks to the 1993 film starring Bill Murray, Groundhog Day has become shorthand for feeling like you’re in a nightmarish, Sisyphean loop and can’t get out of it.

People of Nowhere: A Meditation on Syria

Syrian and Iraqi refugees arrive in Greece.

This piece of writing is a brief biography of Syrians. I refuse to use the word refugees throughout because I wanted to emphasize the fact that they are individual groups — they are people who have names and a country which they love.

I offer this essay as a reminder of countless displaced Syrians thousands of miles away.
