      Thank you Strutadee and Tinac43. Victims live in fear and that is why compassion is the key. Strutadee, you did well by using compassion. At Tinac43, you can learn more by going to the Imprisoned Show website or the Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking website. There are other useful websites. Just do a google search. Thank you for your interest. And, I will continue to post related bogs here on hub pages.

      Thank you.

      Thanks for the information. This is an issue that I am following recently because I witnessed it in action unaware of what was going on at the time. However, I quickly realized what was transpiring and offered help but the victim was too scared to leave. From first hand knowledge I know that compassion is key if you want to help. We also shouldn't be so quick to judge because everything isn't what it seems. This stuff is happening in our communities right under our noses and goes unnoticed everyday. Thanks again.
