Take away the market!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted!  Why does life get so busy with…life!?  I meant to write an “anniversary” post to myself on the 21st.  January 21st signaled one year since I’ve been praying for (and trying to raise awareness about) Human Trafficking.  This is so important to me!  Why are there slaves in America?

Because there’s a market. 

Anytime you are frustrated about any given situation, remember that the MARKET is why things are sold.  If no one wanted slaves…if no one bought sex…Human Trafficking would not exist! 

You can apply that rule to ANYTHING, not just Human Trafficking.

What does this mean for people who are trying to end devastation in their world?  It means EDUCATION.  It means dealing with the next generation.  Not hiding the truth from them, not sugar coating problems or attempting to make them black and white. 

We need to say, “Hey, this is what we’re dealing with.   This is BOTH SIDES of the issue objectively.  Here’s what’s happening.”

We need to teach our kids to be role models, to be decent citizens.
