As I look back over my experiences with Refugees International, it seems to me that Refugees International is more relevant today than ever. I was first introduced to Refugees International by Trish Malloch-Brown in 1995. In my first meeting with RI's former president, Lionel Rosenblatt, he tried to impress me with RI's work in Southeast Asia at the time. But when he mentioned Bosnia, it really got my attention. He had no way of knowing that my son had just been deployed to Bosnia. Soon after, I landed in Tuzla and got permission from the Battallion Commander to drive throughout the country for two weeks not long after the fall of Srebrenica. This was my first experience with RI.
