Trafficking on Primetime

Tuesdays here on Footsteps is dedicated to the issue of human trafficking.  Today, I want to share a link with you that should provide a glimpse into what I am most concerned about: American sex slavery.  If we can’t stop this from happening in the land that stands for freedom, then can it truly be stopped anywhere?  If you were ever confused as to how pimps get away with sex slavery in the U.S., then click below!

stop the traffick IIToday is Tuesday.  This is the day I choose to focus on the subject of Human Trafficking here at Footsteps.  There’s really only so much a person can say about Trafficking.  Eventually I just start repeating myself! (If you’re new to Footsteps, and would like to see what I’ve said about this issue in the past, click on the Topics” drop-down on the right sidebar and go to “Human Trafficking” or “Stop the Traffick” or click on the “My Cause” tab at the top of the page.)  One new thing I’ve been doing in regards to Trafficking is watching a plethora of different videos on the subject.  Seeing other people’s emotional works is an inspiration to me.  I’ve found one video that I would like to share with you.  It’s a new organization I stumbled upon.  Their website is Love146.com.  They are an organization specializing in Aftercare and Prevention.  In other words, they train safe houses how to best care for children rescued from sexual exploitation and they speak out about prevention of Human Trafficking. Here is their promotional video.

p.s. Quick reminder: Don’t forget that September 25-27 is prayer weekend for Human Trafficking, set up by the Salvation Army!

Mark your calendars!

My cousin sent me this link from the Salvation Army because she knows how much raising Human Trafficking awareness means to me.  The Salvation Army is hosting a prayer weekend September 25-27.  I hope you pray against this crime often, but please mark your calendars and pray especially hard as Christians from all around follow the Salvation Army’s lead that weekend and release Satan’s hold from his innocent Trafficking victims!
