RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Thanksgiving is a day of gratitude and also a day to show it. Alex Assali fled Syria eight years ago after openly criticizing President Assad. Last year, he finally made it to Germany. And now Assali can be found on the streets of Berlin serving food to the homeless.
