Hard to leave my conscious




My passion in life is not always an easy one to swallow. My mom always tells me that I have a stomach to watch movies about human trafficking and slavery today. But sometimes it's a little to much to bear.

Just think about it for a second: Imagine yourself (yes you) getting raped 15-20 times a day. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it now but I would hate for that to be the reason I wouldn't talk about it anymore. This is a reality for over 27 million people. Try fathoming that number for a second because I find it so difficult? And its growing. More people are being bought and sold and there is a silence about it all.
It's happening. Girls as young as 4 being raped. Stop avoiding it. If I remain silent, I'm telling these traffickers that it is ok. That i'm going to be ignorant and pretend it's not going on. Thats not ok. It's not ok. These young girls and boys need us. They need us to start talking about it and stop being silent. It's happening- now lets do something about it. 

Please watch this video- it broke me to see this girl and to be honest she hasn't left my conscious yet. She is a real girl with emotions and feelings and she is worth so much.  God loves her and she is a princess. I hope that she feels that way today despite her past. 

Talk about it. Please. Talk about the slavery today and the use of exploiting children here in Canada and around the world. 

with love.
