This issue has been weighing heavy on my heart for the last year, but really amped up in the last couple of months.

I am shocked by my own naive perspective on the scope of this problem.

It is an epidemic which runs rampant through every corner of the world. I lived in Gastown, BC for 6 years and saw these women on every street corner. I walked by the women as though they didn’t exist.

How is this ok? Why does this exist? I am troubled.

    this is an issue that is close to my heart as I thwarted a potential sex trafficking situation – a man was trying to talk this girl into doing some modeling – I overheard their conversation and jumped in asking for his credentials…Needless to say, he couldn’t produce any even though he claimed to represent the world’s top models – not even a business card. My husband, me and a concerned bystander were able to get the girl to safety. Where did this happen – Flat Iron district of NYC! Check out the A21 Campaign – a great group doing amazing things 🙂

    It truly is an epidemic in our world today, but we can take a bit of comfort in knowing that there are those who are helping the victims of such a heinous crime. They’re making a difference, one person at a time.

    This world is sick. Waiting for an economic catastrophe next year. A new world is coming. Unknown, frightening, but hopeful.

    One step at a time…hopefully to a better world. Really puts ‘the grass is greener’ into perspective.
