We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

People Dying. Is Living Illegal? Documentary of a Humanitarian Effort

Hey, I knew this guy and their family while Jared was a grad school. I think the film is pretty thought invoking. Definitely the start of some conversations, that's for sure!
Hey everybody. One of my good friends from grad school, Bryce Newell, has a film he's trying to get off the ground on kickstarter. It might be a touchy subject for some people but go check out the trailer, it's definitely worth taking a look.

I admire your friend for producing this film. He's right - this is a touchy subject in our country. The USA has always been a haven for those seeking a better life, but how do we balance immigration law with compassion for those who cross borders illegally at any cost, even their own lives? I strongly believe that those who want to live in the US should follow the law to gain entrance as my son-in-law did. At the same time, I can sympathize with those who are attempting to prevent death and disease on the many trails coming across our borders. It would be interesting to see the film when it comes out.
