It Gets Personal!


Up to this point, I feel like I’ve fed you a lot of statistics and not enough substance to show you just how real the problem of human trafficking is in this country – in every country!

The average age for a girl entering the slave trade is 13 years old.

13 years old! That’s it. Surely, you know a family member or friend or neighbor that age. Can you imagine them being taken for the purpose of sexual exploitation?

It gets personal. When I heard the average age was 13 my thoughts immediately went to my sister who is 13. That hit home very quickly. Don’t think something can’t happen to anyone. This is closer to home than it might seem – much closer than you might think.

This is why it is so important to educate yourself on the trafficking. No one is immune to it. For the sake of those around you, learn to recognize the signs. You could save a life – and it could be someone you know – it could be your loved one.

How are you going to educate yourself on the issues?

Save a life.
