Peter Capaldi is awesome, part eleventy: visiting Syrian refugees

Lots of celebrities get to have photo ops and such with refugees.  Aid groups often encourage it, because it can get some more attention to their project, by attracting the notice of the celebrity’s fans.  And the celebrities usually get a chance to look heroic out of the deal.  Peter Capaldi has now had his turn doing so, and in keeping with everything we’ve learned about the man so far, did so with amazing grace.  Watch this video, and hear him speak with awe about the incredible dignity and courage of the refugees, as they hold to their humanity even as they flee the country where they’ve spent their entire lives, the land they love, but the land they can no longer stay in for the sake of their children.
