HOMELAND

Whose homeland?
Why do the words ‘home’ and ‘land’ sound good while ‘homeland’ refers to something restricted, nationalistic, and even prejudiced? A person can leave a place behind either under duress or voluntarily.
Relocating and crossing borders can be the fruit of necessity or independence. In both cases, change and distance affect how one views the place and community left behind.
