Behind Her Empty Eyes

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them (Eph 5:11).

Her spirit is broken. Life is hell on earth. Darkness is her constant companion, and it has left her body void of life. She is empty. Each day begins and ends the same way. The hours in between? The same. She has tasted the horrifying taste of sin- not her own. 

She has been trafficked, one of the 27 million.

Tomorrow is Anti-Human Trafficking day. I will be wearing a key around my neck in honor of these strong souls. Will you join me? 

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. (Eph 5:11-13).

Human Trafficking isn't some problem that just happens to the few, and it's about girls getting themselves in bad situations that's of their own doing. No, they have been kidnapped- they believe they have no choice- they have had their families lives threatened- they have been tricked- they have made harmful choices. And that is just naming a few of the reasons girls find themselves slaves to pimps. Human Trafficking is no joke. Women are lying helpless in brothels, and dying as slaves. This is not only an international issue, but this is happening in your own backyard, whatever country you are reading this post in. Seriously, check the stats. Human Trafficking, right now in the USA, is a booming market {my own soil}. Let's get real. 

Oct 18th (tomorrow), I'm joining the folks with the A21 Campaign to dedicate a day to seeing things change, only not stopping after one day. You can find out all about the A21 Campaign and Key2Free by clicking here and here.

For clear perspective watch the videos below. This stuff is real, folks.
