Human Trafficking, Sexual Child Abuse, and Facebook Causes.
What can I say?
As a Hub Pages writer I must say something about human trafficking and sexual child abuse. I must use a certain amount of words in order for the Google bots to crawl this page and put up ads on it. If I don't the whole hub will be flagged as sub-standard.
Human trafficking and sexual child abuse are global problems that are not going to just go away.
I have written three hubs on this subject and many of the other writers here have done the same. There are nearly four hundred of them but I don't know how to make an RSS feed for that so if anyone does, please do and send it to me so I can add it here.
Technically there is a lot I would love to be able to say here. We can make a difference, we can change things... Sadly the best I can do is tell you that the problem is here, it is global, it is happening right now in your neighborhood, in your town, even on your street.
I don't know how much more blunt I can be. If we don't do something to stop this we have no future, and we don't deserve one.
Someone put up a video of a dog rescuing a dog. Maybe watching that will make you see...
Dog saves Dog
Child Sexual Abuse Statistics
The statistics that follow were copied from Darkness to Light:
The statistics are shocking
- 1 in 4 girls is sexually abused before the age of 18. (96)
- 1 in 6 boys is sexually abused before the age of 18. (96)
- 1 in 5 children are solicited sexually while on the internet. (30, 87)
- Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults (including assaults on adults) occur to children ages 17 and under. (76)
- An estimated 39 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse exist in America today.(1)
While these statistics are shocking, they are only an estimate, as many cases go unreported. I don't need to tell you that. One in 5 of you (average) was sexually abused, or is now. Have you told? Probably not...
I was approached by a friend to join a cause on Facebook, and now, I am asking you here to join it too. Here's what's going on.
Facebook has just recently celebrated the milestone of 500 million members. That's amazing. Only 30,000 or so of those members belong to this cause. That has me thinking, what if the cause garnered all 500 million Facebook members. What kind of message would that send to our respective countries who turn a blind eye to the human trafficking going on in their cities. What if, somehow, we could use our contacts on Facebook to bring about a worldwide awakening.

Okay, so lets get this out in the news and in their faces. Please, join a cause and be heard. I mean, if a dog can rescue a dog, why can't humanity rescue it's own children?
Links to other Articles on this subject
I don't know them all, as stated close to 400 hubs on this subject as of this writing. When I get an RSS for that I'll put the feed.
Mean time, here's one by Ralwus called The Groom.
Here is an article along with videos from the news on the subject. Pay particular attention to the video captioned "Trapped in the Sex Trade" in which the news crew shows up before the local police, as the family attempts to rescue their screaming relative from the house.
