Today is April 9 and it’s Shine a Light on Slavery Day. Many of you probably didn’t realize the 27 Million people are still in some form of slavery – most of them against their own will. This happens in the third world as you might expect, but also is happening at an alarming rate in America where 14K-17K people are caught up in sex trafficking each year! This maybe even happening in your town, on the streets you drive down everyday. Even more frightening is that of the 27 Million, 80% are female and 50% are children!
Today, take a moment to consider those people, surf over to the End It Movement web site and educate yourself about this human travesty. And then think about what you can do to raise awareness of this issue, and help take steps to end it!
Defend the weak and the orphans;
defend the rights of the poor and suffering.
4 Save the weak and helpless;
free them from the power of the wicked. Ps 82 NCV
