June 20th was World Refugee Day, a day of awareness, remembrance and celebration for more than 19 million refugees and displaced persons around the globe. For years, many nations held their own refugee days and in 2000, the U.N designated June 20th of every year as World Refugee Day. In 2004, our Governor Dirk Kempthorne, also proclaimed June 20th to be Refugee Day in Idaho and special events do take place in honor of this day. But the general public seems to be unaware or uninterested about this.
