At the entrance to the High Line in New York City stands this sign. It warmed my heart, but it also made me sad to think that such a welcome even needed to be put into words.

The line is also a hashtag used by a higher education initiative designed to make international students feel welcomed.

It’s just too bad that the attitude of welcoming the stranger, a message that ought to be the norm, has suddenly become practically radical!
