January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
This issue lays heavy on my heart.
There are so many statistics I could give you.
Here are just a few:
Every 30 seconds a person becomes a victim of human trafficking
50% of victims are less than 16 yrs. old.
99% of victims are never rescued.
Human trafficking is the second largest and fastest growing organized crime worldwide.
It’s truly disgusting to think about all those children currently in horrible, inhumane conditions.
Some new movies just came out to try and shed some light on this crime.
“Caged No More” was a great movie, and I can’t wait to see “Priceless” that comes out on DVD on Feb. 14
I went onto Pinterest and found even more movies that have been made about this crime.
I first heard about this crime during a Dare to Be event in Nashville in 2015.
Human trafficking is modern slavery.
No one should be condoning this crime.
Every life matters. No one should be taken from the comfort of their home and thrown into a life they have never known – a life that is inhumane.
I encourage you to do more research on the subject. Share and spread the word.
Social media is a great way to share about this horrible crime.
Sometimes, I can have really hard days, but when I reflect on the life that I have,
a free life, I can be grateful for all that the Lord has blessed me with.
A21, Hope for Justice, DestinyRescue are just a few companies with a main mission is to abolish modern slavery.
Join in the movement to help end it.
Have a great weekend!
