    Watching videos like these really show how privileged I am, but never notice it. Granted there is still a level of Freedom I strive for, however its very humbling to see people still keep pushing on despite such hard conditions. They do really inspire me and they might not know it, but this is how change comes. Little by little their visibility makes others aware and discussions begin.

    It has been part of my mission to advocate for people like the one's that are shown in this video. I think part of my job is to elevate and support the true heroes on the grounds in places that are not so open. I recognize my privilege every single day when I speak to someone who wants to come to America or who is seeking asylum. Then again, I am also encouraged by the Africans who are organizing Pride Parades, or the Arabs who are assembling despite the danger they face to be free and to live free. It is those moments of TRUE courage that allows others to step out and join and once momentum is on your side there is no stopping it. When I think about the Balkans I think about so much struggle, horror, and war, and videos like this show me that live indeed life goes on, and that is encouraging.
