Who are you?


This little girl is from Karen State, Burma. Her family and thousands of others have been forced to flee from their homes because of attacks by the Burma Army, who have orders to shoot to kill civilians in Karen State (more on this later). I took this picture while on a 5 week trip with the Free Burma Rangers. I returned safe and sound, but that is not the situation for thousands of people inside. I shot 11 hours of video and plan to make the film mentioned here in the coming months. I'll be posting more stills and info soon...

Matt, I can see why you posted this beautiful little child. What a beautiful shot. Such trust in her eyes. Makes it hard to think she isn't just going on a picnic or some delightful stroll to enjoy the day. Lord, let it be for her someday.
