How do you maintain relationships while apart?
When we have to leave loved ones behind — to flee conflict, to pursue economic opportunity or for reasons beyond our control — we have to work hard on maintaining our relationships. We have to tell each other stories through letters, emails, text messages and Skype conversations to create a world that tethers us to them. In this series, we want to explore these kinds of relationships and through them learn how people cope when they face political and social adversity.
Welcome to "Loving long-distance."
