The exile is not a "deserter"

The daily realities that lead some of us to rebel, or even break from society, or go on "holiday", are nothing (or so little) when others are faced with having to escape, to flee

To "be free" from one’s professional, sometimes family or community obligations, cannot compare (without minimizing the challenge for some) with the plight of a forced migration, of exile. It is not a question of choice or of discernment, but a matter of life and death. It is not a question of "desertion", but of exile, not the exercise of free will, but a liberation.

In fact, exiles and "deserters" have to talk to each other, to express their despair or hope, to enrich each other, to travel together, in order to extract from their migration (exile or "desertion") a new meaning, a renewed life, and to be together... their migration, our migrations.
