Wednesday we'll be re-broadcasting an interview done in 2010 with Celebrity Speaker Luma Mufleh, a soccer coach of an international team, called the Fugees, short for refugees. In the summer of 2004 she organized a team of refugee teens who play for the sheer enjoyment of the game. Individuals in the group suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress, language barriers, and cultural differences.
