This video had me in tears... The will to succeed is always welcome here... Yes, indeed. But it had me going long before then. And I am sure you have seen this and maybe you're tired of hearing about the commercial that was "too controversial". But for me, it made me recall all the times I had to overcome seemingly unsurmountable challenges ... Although none of them as huge a challenge or risk as this. The physical exertion is only the beginning of this challenge. Once this figurative mom and child pass the figurative doors, it isn't any easier. Now you're in a brand new country you kind of have to stay hidden from and have no money which makes you quite vulnerable.
Im not saying coming over illegally is the right thing to do - but say you're in a life or death or abusive situation and its your only hope... Wouldn't you risk your life to leave too?
