Today I found this article about a girl who was kidnapped and sold. Here in the US. Makes me wonder why this topic isn’t being addressed. I wonder what John McCain and Barack Obama are going to do to help eradicate human trafficking. We’re so obsessed with the economy and the war in Iraq while kids here are being stolen and SOLD. Sold for large sums of money. To men who are willing to BUY them. On US SOIL.
We live in a supposedly enlightened society…some say a post-Christian society. Let’s all just get along. Let’s make up moral code as we go along. Let’s head over to Thailand or to Kenya for “vacation” so that we can pay a pimp to have sex with a young child.
Read the article and let me know what you think.
Do you think that our country is really headed in the right direction?
One thought on “Good article…check it out”
This is the same girl that was spotlighted on MSNBC. There is something seriously wrong when the victim is treated like the criminal. Law enforcement who wrote off her kidnapping as “just another run away” to the hospital staff who treated her like a junkie due to the combination of drugs in her system, by no doing of her own, including a date rape drug. What is wrong with this picture! This all the more solidifies the importance of education, education, education; from law enforcement to first responders, social workers to counselors. People need to get their heads out of the sand and open their eyes to see that this is going on all around them. Denial is no longer an option!!!!!!
