Somewhere a child dreams of the happy years What shall I be, who shall love me
Years later on a squalid pad a child gives what she never had
now a child screams crying falls upon deaf ears What have I come to where is the love I never knew
Alone she wonders how it would be if she were home at once joyful and free...
Human Trafficking is a subject close to my heart. I had never heard of it until a few years ago, then I watched the movie "Human Trafficking" with Donald Sutherland and was struck by how easily even the smart and savvy among us are taken in by these thugs. I knew that I in my younger days would have succumbed also. It is heartbreaking. This are was inspired by that movie it has been years since I have seen it but I will never be able to forget it.

Human Trafficking happens everywhere, in every city. To real live INNOCENT children, tricked, deceived and swept away. Forced labor, forced prostitution or both. The average lifespan of victims of human trafficking is 7 years. Only 1% are ever recused. What can we do? Start here:http://www.freedomyouthproject.org/
