I have spent nine Sunday nights in the past 3 months writing blogs about human trafficking. I’ve researched nine different subjects and personal testimonies under the subject of human trafficking. Some might say I know about the subject like the back of my hand, I would say I still have a lot to learn. But let’s talk about a few more things.
Human trafficking is not the same thing as sex trafficking. Although it is very similar in ways, they are two different things. Human trafficking is the traffick of people for labor and sex, while sex trafficking is the traffick of people just for sex. I think that many times people think human trafficking is just for sex, but that is not the case at all.
THIS IS HAPPENING EVERYWHERE. I can not get that across to people enough. It’s happening in North America, just like it’s happening in the third world countries. And actually I think the U.S is sort of in the middle of it all. Girls, boys, men, and women are brought from other countries over to the United States for human trafficking. So in my opinion the U.S is in the middle of it.
What I want everyone to get out of my blog is that there is no one solution. I honestly don’t think there is anyway to stop human trafficking completely. But that does not mean we give up and just let it happen. We need to open our eyes and see what’s happening around us, and act on it. We need to reach out and help these people who are in trouble. And stop this horrific thing, that is modern day slavery.
