Society In Coma
Society is in a coma when it comes to trafficking.
TRAFFICKING AND FORCED PROSTITUTION are NOT OK AND IT'S UP TO US TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
Girls are out there, screaming day and night. For some girls, no one hears or comes to help them. After a while, they stop screaming. They learn that less resistance results in fewer black eyes and fewer broken bones. They smile on the street corner and beckon men as if having sex with strangers is their own idea. Meanwhile, a pimp lurks in the background. Afterwards, he collects the money and she collects the STD's.
The idea for the book and the blog is to open up discussions on the subject, so that our collective input can be used to stop the most humiliating form of slavery. After working for 10 years in this field, I've concluded that here is no political will to really put an end to it. So I decided to find ordinary people to do extraordinary things (people like you and me) and try to help the girls.
Thanks for joining me this week. Following is an article from Reader's Digest that describes the situation and the area in which I live and work. Below that, you'll find a continuance of the excerpt from Unstoppable Redeemer.
