It's hard to describe the emotional whirlwind of these past few days in Bangkok. I woke up desperate for nature to try and process it all, and well, this is the closest I could get . . .
Last night our crew went undercover to the sex clubs where the topic we are investigating actually takes place. It's one thing to hear the stories, and quite another to actually interact with these girls and see the injustice. By the time we made it back to our hotel I was boiling with anger which suddenly broke into uncontrollable sadness. At the beginning of this trip I kept saying "it's not enough to just feel sympathy for these girls" but as I let out the sobs last night, they felt 100% necessary. Yes, sympathy may not be enough to free them, but if we can't physically feel their pain as our own, they remain an issue, and not a person. Tears are not a waste. Actually, I think a lot more tears need to be shed for these girls. Maybe then we could wake up and realize how insane it is to allow things like this to exist in the world.
