something is going on right here in the USA and it breaks my heart....

Human Trafficking and Sex Slavery. When I first heard of it, I thought it only happened in other countries, Africa, Mexico, India etc. But its not. Its right here in the United States, the land of the"free". 100,000 to 300,000 people exploited in America every year. Its the fastest growing illegal trade. Its a horrid nightmare that is reality and life for the enslaved women and children. that's right-children. I have 2 younger siblings, 5 y.o. brother and 8 y.o. sister and my heart breaks just thinking about what precious little kids are forced to do. These people are crying out for help and we need to take a stand. We can help to stop it.
Did you know that we can use the Superbowl has a platform to increase awareness of trafficking and slavery and decrease the demand for it?? well neither did I until I watched this video by Natalie Grant and Tenth Avenue North. please take a few mins and watch it. it will open up your eyes and who knows, maybe God will use you to help stop it :)
