christiehklokYears ago myself and some amazing filmmakers flew to Thailand with the hopes of sneaking into Burma (Myanmar). Our goal was to raise money to aid people fleeing the government at the time. We arrived in Mae Sot, Thailand soon after the cyclone hit and were witness to the added devastation. We found a way into Burma but only one of us could go, and it was me. After a rough trek through the jungle I arrived at the Shan State refugee camp. I want you to understand the desperation of a mother fighting to give her child a happy life. It's fierce and unwavering. It's what you would do for your own child. Now, being a mother myself I can’t even comprehend not being able to give Wyatt a safe place to sleep. I am extremely privileged, and thankful every day that I can give that to him. Some are not so lucky. And now the president is keeping refugees from this beautiful country. Stop and think about what the current administration is doing. Think about your kids and your loved ones. These are humans. Human beings are all that matters in this world. #noban
