So on Twitter @RevJarelRB said someone shoudl perform a Requiem for all those refugee souls lost at sea and I am thinking that writing one might be an idea.

I would want to raise money for e.g. MSF or some similar organisation -- or even better, one run by refugees? I'm not sure. I sortof know someone who works at MSF and might be willing to talk to me though so it's as good a place to start as any.

I don't want to be appropriative and I don't want this to be about my voice, necessarily. I would hope to interview some actual refugees, and with their permission, use their words/experiences -- about the persecution they are fleeing and also about the journey itself.

I'm thinking of the standard text of the Requiem Mass, in Latin, interspersed with words of refugees in English and other languages.

Thoughts?
