We are the world

Change can only come when we stand together as one.

We are the world
We are the children
We are the one who make a brighter day so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we make a better day just you and me.

Pi On, asked, “What makes a person Thai?” We were talking about how Thai citizenship makes you a person, many police don’t care the moment you don’t identify as Thai, or carry a white citizenship card. People who are born in Thailand are not considered Thai citizens either. But really, WHAT makes a person Thai?

It is a mix of being Chinese, a little bit of Karen, a little bit of Lahu, a little bit of Mon, a little bit of everything.
I just found out that my mom’s ancestry comes from the Uighurs in Xinjiang, China. The people suffering in Xinjiang now, they are my people in a sense. Think about what makes you who you are, maybe a little African, a little Mexican, a little Chinese, a little Russian, a little Irish- whatever. Our people are dying, they are being trafficked, abused, hungry- fight for your people.

Don’t you see that we are the world? We’re saving our own lives.
