snow shower: In the video, the seven-year-old girl and five-year-old boy twirl, dance and revel in the snow shower in the backyard of Davies' Toronto-area home, according to CTV. The clip has since garnered nearly 2 million views and been shared thousands of times on Twitter, often with accompanying hashtags and messages welcoming refugees in general and the children in particular. Rebecca Davies shot the video on Saturday, 48 hours after the children shown in it arrived in Canada with their mother and two siblings as privately sponsored refugees. Davies, who helped sponsor the Eritrean family through the private Ripple Refugee Project, says the video's reception gives her hope. When a universal, lovely little vignette of kids playing in snow gets this kind of response, it gives me some hope for humanity, she said in a telephone interview. She says she encounters racism and anti-immigrant sentiment in her work on behalf of refugees, but says the positive responses to the clip have left her feeling more confident about the society the family is eager to join.
