This is difficult for all the ways that being transportation and being a Hamas difficult right. There's this sort of those zone that you live in. Most of the Church of WANNA. Recognize you and then most of the Trans community is like. Please stop talking about Jesus so. Right, right, sure sure and that's. Because you know people talking about Jesus. have been the people hurting us the most or I got. well. Do you know who Dr Ling Ling Lam is? I think I do. Okay so he's a clinical psychologist who is? Gay and married, and a very devout, Christian useful in mainland China. That's another episode I'll I'll send you, but He spoke at the C. N.. Back in when it was in Pittsburgh, I happened to be there and so I had on my show and one of the things again for those who have any connection to the Bible He was talking about the Jacob and Esau story in a way. That blew my mind. and. He essentially said. Purely by birth order. By the happenstance who came out I who came out second, these fraternal twin brothers, Jacob and Esau and s aw was kind of the the the masculine son that you were trying to be right, so he was Harry and he was athletic and Blah Blah Blah, and Jacob was not that way. He didn't have hair on his arms, and he was built more slightly and you like cooking with his mom. But because of the expectations of his family and his culture, and purely by the birth order thing. He was denied his true identity to the point where he put goatskins. On his arms when he went into his blind father to try to get the birthright, and here he was Dr Lamps Point he said. Because of Jesus like knowing, can still your birth identity and your birthright, you have the full blessing of you don't have to put on goatskins. Like. WHOA. And he's just. Share that on my episode, because that's what he shared at at this conference, and I thought Oh my gosh, this. This is just another example of how a queer or trans person who also shares my faith. Is causing scales to fall for my eyes, and to re look at the text, right? and to re look at God and I just wanted to pass it on to you. Because I I feel like that's another scripture of of your own transformational journey. Is it not? Absolutely, that's just such a powerful metaphor. We don't need to put on the goat's skin. Yeah and he's physically seeing. Jesus declared. We are all the first born of got. Absolutely. Yeah so I just WanNa firm you. You know not needed anymore, but I just think that that's incredibly personal and powerful I. Mean everybody you know Queer or not needs to hear that message. What? I mean.

"Even if your neighbor makes you uncomfortable like even if your neighbors, our enemy, and I I think you know my daughter's generation. As they are getting less and less inclined to want to go to church, because of those recent they they understand that essential teaching and it's it's they just see the Apocrypha city and like dope. Oh Yeah. And I think that's it is is when you actually. Live! This way that Jesus forward. Accepting. How deeply and unconditionally loved Uehara so that you can love this hurting world back to life on it puts you up odds with. The cultural artifacts that are still claiming his name that that don't look anything like him. Yeah? Yeah now I was. Googling, you just to see what was out there and it came across a youtube video about two and a half minutes long last April I think it was at your church and Pasadena. Worry you underwent a renaming ceremony is that? Is that accurate? I can't. So. I love my church so very much and the leadership there in the past couple years has. Really. Created a space to. Hear Trans Voices at the Church and see what the needs of trans people of faith are. and to try to meet those needs as rapidly as possible. So one of the things that they approached me about didn't even ask for was if I would want to do a renaming ceremony at Easter. And of course I was thrilled to do that. I didn't even know that was a possibility, so. Having for being an Episcopalian essentially were were Catholic light like it's all of the ritual, but. You can kind of believe what you want in terms of how you approach the ritual. In just having. A ritual around Easter, which is such a meaningful time you know in in the Christian faith of reverting renewal. The resurrection. Being able to in front of the same community that I had gotten married and in front of the same community that I had. been confirmed in baptized in. Be Seen and later arrest the old. Perception of me publicly, then publicly declare who I am. In the eyes of God and the faith community who loves me was. So pivotal and to me coming to a point of really loving and accepting myself. Yeah! I was moved just. Observing it! You know over a year later. And I thought the Liturgy. Again the the rector who was doing this was calling out things that any Bible believing Christian would be familiar with like just as God gave New Names to Abraham and Sarah Wright and Jacob. It's like Oh yeah, that's that's just peppered in the Old Testament. This whole new name stuff right a and even saul and Salta to Paul in the New Testament. but. It seeing it now in the context of your life. just gave me assist head person so much more profound appreciation for the text, right? It's like I haven't seen it in Carnegie did. Like that before it was just part of Biblical knowledge, but this the C. You. Hearing your new name publicly declared an affirmed blessed and announce to the world on Easter Sunday the biggest Sunday of the year for Churches Right not not an some Wednesday night in a Ho- tucked in the in the middle of nowhere. The all of the significance of that wasn't lost on me. That's what they want to say to you absolutely. Absolutely profound moment and I'm grateful for it and I hope to see more. Were you the only trans person that was renamed that day? Yes, I don't know if they've done any ceremonies since But I am keeping an eye out, and we have a pretty sizable trans community at the church. In relation to the general populace I mean we're point six percent of. The US populace, which doesn't count people that are living stealth or in the closet. And even still that's that's very very tiny. So having a little handful of us at this church is is pretty Greg, and as a way for us new. Maintain faith community while also giving input into how this faith community shaped for the future. And I think for the work that some of us have done doing on. The queer aspect. I think what you went through what you're describing Ella. It's it's it underscores that just kind of focusing on queer issues can really overlook transitions law in in a church context. I don't know that a queer person would necessarily want to go through a renaming ceremony. You know so but that makes total sense when it comes to gender identity changing great war absolutely at least publicly. Yeah, and that's not difference right like like clearness and Orientational is all about who you WANNA be with and gender identity is just crew you are. So so for the. The listeners out there who are just starting to learn the difference distinct. Between Queer and Trans folks. You, you said okay, so I might gender identity is as a woman, but I'm attracted sexually to women. How do you? How do you explain the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation, and is there between orientation attraction to? So, it's very complicated, right, there are people. There's like manse. Their sex in identity in terms of attraction I probably fit somewhere more unlike the vizquel in terms of like. Oh, I can be visually attracted, or maybe the student make me blush. but in terms of romance, who I fall in love with in envision partnering with. That's all women, and it's always been women.

Think I can't remember the outcome of the suit, but her point was A. I have a medical condition and you're you're you fired me for this? Okay, because otherwise I match all of the criteria of the school, and in fact, many of the students say I'm one of their favorite professors, and they still take my classes and. That kind of made I think at the time I was on the board of a Christian liberal arts. School and and So that was certainly circulating among trustees of Christian colleges of like Oh my gosh right. This is our biggest headache I. Don't know about worst nightmare, but. Yeah and I think even here in southern California USA Pacific University had a professor who came out as Trans and. Similar sort of thing right so was my. Church history professor actually. Oh you're kidding. Yeah, so it was fantastic because I I ended up being a student having todd p you and then having hint sort of be the signpost in my life. Through transition has been fantastic. So you've you've. Built or maintained and built the relationship or friendship after coming out. I mean a bit I, think he. He meant not an area anymore. But he's really active in. The community activism so. Really proud of what he's done since then. Yeah, so there have been people who've gone before you. Do, you have any idea how the school explained like. Did they? Let you go before the end of the school year the deal, let you finish it out. And I finished out summer school. Actually, which was that was fun. And and then it was done. saw. was just. To finish than I I was done didn't come back for the fall. Yeah, but I you know I would have taken that deal was offered to. The Michigan case that was the deal. Whooping for.

On the other category right just like Trans and queer people around the other category today, and when? Jessie goes out to to call out all his sons. David. So what on earth is is David excluded from with the category of sons, right. And Carrying a message that. That David. This one who who doesn't even get to count as a son who's who's kind of weird in terms of gender kind of weird in terms of his sexuality. Is the one that God picks. In is the one that. Sets off the lineage for for Jesus and. And is the one that God says is the man after his own heart. Let me know that I was loved and I was loved completely where I was at. And fully seen where I. And I think for the first time. I really felt. The love of God and the peace of God. In that sermon and I knew that. With all the difficulties that that we're GONNA come ahead in coming out and transitioning that it was going to be okay. And that it was, it was going to be good. So, I came out later that day. Which I do not recommend to anybody. Don't come out on father's Day. Don't come on Mother's Day at the. Ad Level is unnecessary But it also speaks to the degree to which I was so uncomfortable that just had displaced that. Can you take us back? To how you did that, I'm assuming you shared this with your your parents on father's Day. Yes where we were at a dodger game and. I was all decked out in all. My sports gear and part of the performance was meet picking a team in every single sport, and forcing myself to watch all the Games, and pretend that I was just madly in love with all of it. I'm an Angelino I love. The dodgers I love to go. EAT A hot dog and watch the fireworks, but. It got to the point where I was like I don't WanNa wear this stupid hat i. don't want him where this Jersey. Anymore. I Don sit here. Pretending like I'm walking the game I'm really done like I'm done performing for anybody, so we got home and it was just word vomit it just all came out and. And, then it was just dealing with it on. Now vitiating what that looks like with my family of origin and You know being rejected for a bit. And trying to heal from that and. That's been an ongoing journey. Yeah, and I'm still very estranged from my father and brother but. Very recently my mother and I have been you know rekindling this relationship and seeing what that looks like, and so that's been a blessing, not only in terms of you know feeling like you have a mom again, but also getting that source of. What does that mean? Does that the whole thing? Yeah Yeah. Okay, well Do you remember the first one or two things? You said when you did the word vomit I'm I'm kind of curious like. How do you break the ice? How do you go there? On so what I believe I said, and it's hard, because like the memories all colored by now yen but I'm pretty sure that it was something along the lines of. I'm not a man. I've never felt like a man and I felt like I've been lying to you and myself. And I feel like a woman I think that the word for it is transgender and I'm going to look into what that that means for me? Pretty. It sounds pretty clinical. What you've said. You know when you have a an Asian parent. Sometimes you understand that you have to preemptively consider some of the pushback. I wanted to Raymond and wave that was. This is what's happening. This is the decision that's being made instead of curious. How y'all? Please give me all of your input. And Do you have any recall? The individual responses from your each of your family members. You have mom and dad and you have a brother of there's anybody else. And So my ex wife she was. A other than being heartbroken that the man she married isn't the man she married. Chee she was and is fantastic in has been in is an enormous advocate to not only my family of origin but people. Are? Tossing. Yeah it's! It's been a blessing. My brother he tried. In the early stages of transition. It's also really hard just for Trans People. We're figuring ourselves out. figuring out with that looks like in terms of relating to other people. And there is just so much frustration and anger that I had not disclosed any of this before. I'm feel. A lot of the foundation of our relationship to him had disappeared. On. So batches sort of dissolved in. You know. Hopefully that comes back. Sunday. and I think that's where my father is at to. But my mom he said at the time was on.

"Was really difficult, and it came to a point where I realized that. If I were to continue to be vulnerable self. It was going to continue to cost me a lot of. Harm. Whether that was bullying, not school or even. Trying to live up to the masculine expectations of my father, who was you know a Marine in Swat team? Oh my goodness. I was wondering is winning. Your Dad's opinion comes into play. Yeah, so because of that, and because of what I was told I was and what I needed to become You know someone like my father. I pushed so much of myself down. and. Began to adopt a persona. which was my attempt at becoming someone like can. Right I I tried to toughen up. I tried to run with all the boys that I thought looked tough to me and emulate them emulate their mannerisms on. To the point where I found myself living this. Performed life that seems so distant to the core of who I was. And I did not performance. Through two marriages. And it it went on until I was about thirty years old two years ago when I came out. Very, recently see I. I've only. Quote Unquote known you as we became facebook friends and I think you got involved with my old churches the open door I mean I've only known you as a Trans Woman, and you are so naturally feminine in how you present yourself just your body language, and all that I can't imagine you. Acting like the tough guys. Like. It just blows my mind. It is comical when I reflect on it. But I did from like trying to be a boxer bray like. Like. Just really trying to live into the shoes of well, this is what a tough guy is, and this is what I'm supposed to be so let me shoot the guns and. Go lift and Volka. And when I think back I, thought I just I feel so. Much compassion for my former self trying to jump through these hoops. In destroying my body in ways that felt really unnatural. So two years ago, you decided. I'm one of my guests was. One of the early Asian American Trans. Woman she's She's now a senior citizen, but she's a legendary defense attorney in downtown, Los Angeles Mia and She, she says something to me. That just has stuck with me ever since to see what you say to that, she said if you talk to an older transplant and transition till I think she was in her sixties. Okay, so so she says. When you talk to order Trans people who have yet to transition, it's like I can't die in the wrong body like I have to be congruent. I have to be authentically who I am and I'm going to let the chips fall where they may, and when she told me that I thought. Oh, my gosh, that's kind of an essential human authentic issue. Regardless of gender identity is like how many of us are wrestling inside with that kind of essential disconnect, and saying I know the reasons why, but there's other factors that are holding me at bay, but I'm just older every day and I need to. I need to be who I am. How how do you relate to that? I think that you know hitting thirty and then coming out. Two months later. Probably speaks a lot to that. A lot of it was also just seeing the ways in which. My actions were. Like the the the need to perform as as a man that I'm not. Was Not only causing me suffering most housing suffering to other people right the people that I was in relationship with. I wasn't able to bring my full self to. There was so much secrecy in lying and hiding. and. That got to be so burdensome. Just living living a life that you feel as a complete lie, and that you feel like a complete fraud and that everyone can sort of tell. was exhausting and it got to the point where. My ex wife actually noticed that some of her makeup was missing. and. I didn't WANNA lie again. and I I just came out with it, and said well. This is actually it. This is the lion secret I've been holding. And it snowballed from there. I came up to my family. About a month after on with the help of. An inspiration of My church actually. And it's just spend a wonderful hard beautiful journey the past two years, so he say. My church I'm guessing. It's not the Riverside Korean church you grew up in. No so I found myself being raised very evangelical and. I I came in touch CS, Lewis and lords of CS, Lewis who I just fell in love with this mind. This wine that was you know deeply touched by a faith tradition, but also. Not Fearful and I found that so much of evangelical thought was was trapped in fear. I can think that I can't do that. And the intellectual curiosity of Louis. Drove me to look into his tradition walking church which is the. Church in America. And a started into All Saints Church in Pasadena which is very.

We are really excited to have. Ella Baker on. She is a hop Korean Trans Woman, and I like what you put on your facebook. Page Queer. Trans Weirdo which. I think you're your own kind of making fun of yourself. In the midst of your journey is just refreshing, and it's vital vitalising, so thank you so much for agreeing to come on and share your story with US Ella. Thank you for having the space and me on its pleasure to be here to talk with your. facebook friends for a while. We've never I. Don't know that we've ever met in person, but. I wasn't you looked to me like you're white. And so I was intrigued with your story has been following it by like. How do I get her on our podcast? If she's not somewhat Asia, so I? Sent that cryptic message like. Is there any truth to the rumor that you might have some Asian? This new and it's like. So, so explain explain your qualifications how you got to be on this particular Asian American cast. Chill money'll hunger nine moms Korean. My Dad is a white. American marine and they met In Seoul. While he was stationed overseas and fell in love moved to Okinawa, and then came over here and birth me. And where was where was that? Where did you grow up? I grew up in Riverside California in the Korean immigrant community and Interestingly Riverside actually had the first and largest create Tom. Kate overly exploding. And if you go out there? I think forever reciting lock theorists still has some of the best Korean food in California. I will drive an hour out to go get the best judge win. Wow, I I'm astounded. I've never heard this before. Why are there so many Koreans there? I actually do not know. I think it's part of that. You know American Immigration Story of people congregate defined. Like culture in that brings a level of comfort in the face of America's kind of. Injunction to be homogeneous and enjoying the white culture mom, and then to speak to sort of like me passing as white right. Yeah! That has been something that. Sort of entwined trans identity as well 'cause being HOFFA. Korean friends growing up. Would always sort of keep me those like an arm's length, right? You're hear you speak a language. You're part of our church. You're part of our culture you're not, Korean. And then when I would go to school to the public, school where? Friends were marginally not Asian. Everyone say you look like you're Chinese. You look like Bruce Lee. And I found myself in this in this really uncomfortable place where there wasn't belonging. Right the majority white culture. Something different and other in me. And then my. Korean culture. That was my home. Also had something to see. That was a little different than other in me. So sort of being Haapala is hard in American culture. Because it's a what am I right I feel like I'm I'm both I'm both right? I liked the description. HOPPE's are doubled. They're not half. Yeah absolutely, and which really helps. Helped me understand sort of like the theology or of crystal g right like what does it mean for Jesus to be fully God fully man that was like. Fully. Fascinating fascinating. And you, said you part of your upbringing. Outside your family was involvement in a Korean church. Absolutely so I grew up on spending all day every day at Korean church. If anyone has volunteered Korean church, be new of the service as long and then not their service to you break for community meals, and that typically is your whole day on so that. Just, growing up in the church and being around that kind of loving community. was really formative in my primary years. But then the the question that you shared their about. Like where do I fit? You were kind of leaning into also the gender identity question. To how early did that question become part of the? WHERE DO I fit? Why so? Just like with the race where where do I fit became a well when I'm with Korean, people all be comfortable and let that part out and I'm not. I'll let it come out when it it works. I found ways to sort of. Acts the part needed when I. was really young up to about the point of navy seven on. The majority of my friends and Best friends were girls. I would hang out with girls. I would. Ask to have my hair long and where t shirt on my head and whip it around like it was long hair. I just felt. Like me like the all that I am. and was so confused by the reaction. That I would get from other people. Simply, being me that I was being. Had to toughen up or you know boys don't cry. And being told that. What you feel, isn't you? You have to fit into. All of these behaviors and modes, and what we call that in this culture.

Like there ain't their ancestor great-great-great-great-great-grandfather James Dewolf. Had Not only traded slaves in the northeast, but was the number one slave trader in America at the time. And this is a shock to her and so She gathered a few willing relatives some she'd never met before. And with the documentary film inner maker in Tow.

And then back to the northeast, and and the early part of the movie, one of her relatives that she was just meeting was a guy named Tom and he was from Oregon and for some reason. Put an are parenthesis after his name, so he's also Republican. and. He makes this early statement as as he's learning. The incontrovertible truth about this ancestor of all of there's. He says you know. Really troubling. It's very disturbing, but I'm. I'm judging this. With contemporary eyes and ears and I refuse to vilify. People who lived who relate to us live one hundred fifty two hundred years ago. 'cause if I lived at that time in you lived at that time, I mean maybe we would really have a different take on this whole slavery thing and I remember hearing him. Say That and I was just like. I don't know I'm not buying it right. Okay so now he goes on the trip. And I think it's the second week, and they're in Ghana and they happen to be. led around by the tours guide to specialize in the history of the slave trade, and he takes them to this old building and an apparently. This building was built really well, even though it was very simple building because. Their ancestor had used this building and there was by several like fifteen by thirty foot. Rooms that up two thousand Africans who had been captured never seen the ocean. We're about to be packed onto. Ships is they can fill one right. They were in those rooms, and and there's no sunlight, and it's just really crude. And the same guy. Tom From Oregon. He's in this room. And then he stops, and he basically says you know what I changed my mind. I don't care when you were alive. For you to look at putting fellow human beings in a space like this knowing what you're planning to do with them that bullshit, if you if you actually don't see that it's as evil, let alone inhumane right. And that that to me was a turning point for Tom and the film, but but I think it. It's an apt way to talk about. I think the difference in the protesting. That's going on right now in our streets. All across the United States and even around the world. Unlike Tom I I think a lot of white folks in particular, not not exclusively, but especially white Americans are having this calling bull shit moment on themselves as the best way to describe it because you know maybe up till seeing that horrible video of George Floyd being suffocated by that cop with his knee and full weight on his neck for that. Horrible eight minutes and forty six seconds I think there were a number of white Americans say why don't think I'm racist. Right and I don't think that we have systemic racism. I think you know. The police are basically good. There's a couple of bad apples. About, not just George Floyd and and and the viral -ness of that video, but I also think. The other blacks that were killed Armani Aubrey right. Brianna Taylor. All within the same month. Either by COPS or by white people, playing vigilante, and nobody getting in trouble, nobody getting arrested until these videos go viral. Until that moment. There were a lot of people just live with the bullshit. I. Don't see it. I. Just think you know. We already had a two-term African American President I mean. Isn't this supposed racial America? But? What happened in March of twenty twenty. I think was really a wake up call and at the to protest rallies that I've been to the majority of people there. Have Been White. Your American people and their most of them are the ones carrying the signs and chanting. I can't breathe. You know hands up. Don't shoot a black lives matter. You know to see the commissioner of the NFL. National Football League finally reversed himself and and the NFL and saying we totally were wrong. You know in two Thousand Sixteen when Catherine Colin Kaepernick was taken a knee during the national anthem, and we're calling him out on that. It's like no. There is a stomach racism and we were wrong to to to diminish that and Hashtag black lives matter. I think that's a real big difference. That's going down and I think it's because. It's just calling bullshit on yourself moment. Now. This is pride month. And I have to tell you that. Over a dozen years ago. not overnight, but I begin to call bullshit on myself being a Baptist Minister Lifetime Christian. and finally realizing that I had straight privilege. And I had turned a blind deaf ear to lgbtq people. Christian or not and that? I was refusing to see. Let alone admit that this system that rewarded straight privilege that I was part of that I was helping perpetuate. That it was oppressive. To fellow human beings. And That really began to mark a change in how I, not only read the Bible, but how I began to. Preach, and speak and advocate, and even Go Out of my way to get to know.

We've been coming at you from whatever device you use to listen to this podcast since May of twenty, fifteen sixty year and Really excited that we're still putting out a weekly show for you. one of the best things that you can do for us is if you enjoy particular episode that you share it. Via Media Word of mouth with a coworker friend or family member We just think that these conversations that I'm able to have with various Asian Americans. Can Not only be entertaining interesting during this? Still sheltering in place, pandemic but I, but I also think that It's just fascinating All the different people that are out there in the American community who are creatives or or creating. Various content or making contributions to American society, the world as a whole, so thank you again for tuning in my guest this episode. During pride month is Daniel, Roberts Baker. She is a green Honda so half Green Half Caucasian. who grew up in a very conservative Korean church? And maybe I think less than two years ago while she was teaching at a Christian High, school came out. As a trans woman and I haven't really. Spent much time with her, but we became facebook friends through some common acquaintances and I'm always fascinated. With anyone who comes out. Either as far as the sexual or their gender identity, and in particular I'm intrigued by those who identify as trans because there's just so many. Moving parts to they're coming out and so I'm so grateful to Daniela to. Be Willing and brave enough to come and share her story. It's definitely A. One that is still in progress. It's as I said it's. It's still pretty recent when she's coming out and I think you'll benefit a lot from. Just hearing what her journey has been like and some of challenges. She continues to face, but also the hopeful excitement of now that she's kind of much more clear about. This congruency of gender identity, and who she's always known, felt herself to be and what she's now pursuing and program at USC. You can only get excited about the potential of of the rest of her life that these things are all now kind of coming together for her. A speaking of pride, MONTHS We kind of jumped the gun. Last month. Some reason they had just covert brain and without having the virus and We put out two episodes of Gene Nakatani episodes to forty, two and two forty three, because I was thinking may was pregnant for some reason, and so if if you're interested, you can go back and listen to. These people who buried all three of their children. while. They're still in their twenties. To them, because of AIDS and just journey went on as a family and then. Just the way that the Ellen Jane regrouped and decided to just kinda speak to parents in general. About, some of the lessons important vital lessons that they learned along the way about how they could have done a better job in really been there for their for their sons the audio quality of part one for some reason, is not stellar, so you may have to really listen carefully and closely, but it does get better in part to, and that's the part where they really get into other. Join the they went on with. Their two cents, who were HIV positive? You know I didn't grow up swearing. If you know me. You just would be shocked if you heard me. Use cuss, words and I, think part of it was. My growing up in a little Chinese Baptist church where you know that that kind of language was considered sinful, but I think it also had a lot to do with my mom. You know when my mom met and then married my father, he was a veteran of world. War Two. And, you can imagine when you're there on the front lines. There's just all kinds of drinking and cussing going on. Pretty much, my mom. Stopped my from any real regular drinking. Indefinitely like I never heard my dad cuss maybe. Five Times in the whole time we were together. As a family, and and so I gotta believe that my mom had a big influence on me. So. You know imagine my. Discomfort. When I in the past have come across. People leaders who were three enough to actually occasionally and selectively use a choice, a curse word to make their point. A one of the earliest people that do this was Dr Tony. Kim Polo and He's a Christian sociology professor. WHO's always been? Just out there ahead of most people set specially most Christians, on most social justice issues and I remember. One time. He was speaking I, wasn't there? I read about this story? He was speaking to a convention of Youth Pastors Christian, US path pastors, and and he again was trying to get them off the this whole. Limited a way of thinking that okay. You know to be a Christian a follower of Jesus. It's all about not swearing, right and and a don't smoke or drink to excess. And what have you and he was about ten minutes into his address, and he's a very very captivating speaker. And he said you know in the ten minutes or so that it's taken me to get to this point in my message. Like thirty thousand kids in different parts of the world. Have died. From treatable illnesses simply.
