15 Wishes From BSA For 2020. No. 6: A Safe Place to Stay

We’re finishing the decade and we’re completing the year. More importantly, you are still here. And so is our holiday tradition of BSA wishes for the new year.

Certainly there is much work to be done, and we believe that art and the creative spirit can heal our people, our cities, our nations, our planet. May we all look toward 2020 with a clear vision.

At BSA our hearts are full and our minds are untroubled as we look confidently toward these new days- with hopes and wishes for the New Year – and a daily image that inspired us in 2019.


A Safe Place to Stay

An unprecedented 70 million individuals have been forcibly displaced worldwide because of persecution, conflict, violence, or human rights violations, says the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

That’s a rotten number. More street artists like New York’s LMNOPI are reminding us of the refugee crisis around the world and in our own countries. Is there any doubt that every major religion teaches followers to open their homes to the refugee. In fact we’re pretty sure that Mary and Joseph didn’t have any place to go, according to the Christmas story.

We wish you a safe place to stay.
