I attended the anti-human trafficking task force meeting today. On the day Sister Monesa announced her work with the task force I knew I had to be a part of that work. I felt scared! She took both my hands in hers, looked at me with her piercing blue eyes and said, "you are strong enough." I have been trained as a speaker to bring awareness to the horror that is modern day human trafficking. I learned that the Super Bowl is the "main event" in sex slave trafficking. I am horrified and sickened. A short search of Amazon yielded more titles than I imagined would have been written on the subject. On a search of YouTube I found an amazing assortment of of videos designed to raise awareness to the reality of human trafficking. Yet, there is so much silence and denial that it is happening in our towns and neighborhoods. I have included one of the videos I found in the hope of raising awareness.
