Americans are quick to generalize and American politicians are quick to jump on the bandwagon and stir fear and panic. In times of crisis, it appears that we are not always the land of the brave. While French President François Hollande announced that despite their tragedy he remains committed to accepting 30,000 refugees over the next two years, the U.S. can't seem to find the heart to take in 10,000 refugees. Hollande stated that France has a duty to ensure "humanity for refugees and protection of the French people." Indeed, it seems that in France, on the front lines of terrorism, they are capable of doing both. Germany is and will be accepting 750,000 refugees from Syria, while America has accepted around 1,800 thus far. We should be embarrassed.
