Taken: Human Trafficking: The Reality Behind the Movie
This Trailer is Just an Advertisement for A Movie
I went over to the neighbor's house today. The Postal worker accidentally put her mail in my box. I was in a hurry, had to go watch my Granddaughter. She will be two next month. My daughter's best friend was in labor, and she was going to be there for the birth. I was in a hurry. I had to go get cat food and gas and I was already running late. She called me at 9:45 and asked me to be there between 10:00 and 10:30. I said "do you know it's a quarter to already?" I still had to pick up another friend of hers!
What I saw at my neighbor's stopped me in my tracks. She was having a yard sale, which is not allowed where we live. I didn't want to educate her on the rules. I told her I'd been here writing and she got so excited and said, "Here, maybe you can help." She handed me a flier, I gave it a glance...
As my anxiety grew over what I was reading she told me "I got this at church, and we are trying to do something about it. Maybe you can write something about it. Did you know this was going on?"
No I didn't...

I watched this as I was baby-sitting today
Liam Neeson is not going to go and get them. That was a great movie but there is no military task force going after them either.
Why does this happen? In this day and age? I know about sweat shops. This is not about sweat shops although that plays a roll.
Children are very popular as workers, but more popular as prostitutes.
The starting age for child prostitution is four years old.
I digest this information as my granddaughter is playing with her toys, and dancing, jumping, talking. She will be two on Easter.
A new little girl was born today, she was two weeks late and weighed 9 pounds. Maybe she didn't want to come out, into this world where we can argue so long about whether or not to help, that when we make a decision it is too late for so many.
Man on the Moon?
Space station out there somewhere that I have never seen.
Children forced into prostitution. somehow I don't have much to say tonight.
