“If you live a life cut off from your own heart, that’s not really living”
(Finally I got to watch something I purchased ages ago. This is awesome. Watch the trailer and buy the movie. “I’m Fine, Thanks” is available at http://www.imfinethanksmovie.com.It is totally worth it I promise you)
More than 105,000 refugees have crossed the border between Sudan’s Blue Nile state and South Sudan’s Upper Nile state since November, 2011. The journey, usually made on foot, winds through treacherous conflict zones and along back roads that are barely passable due to heavy rains. Most flee on a moment’s notice, bringing only what they can carry, and sometimes nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Some arrive ill or injured, and many have gone hungry along the way. Photojournalist Brian Sokol asked several refugees in South Sudan to show him the most important item they brought with them. See his photo essay to find out what they chose.
