Media Monday - Human Trafficking
Today is Martin Luther King Day in the United States. One of his dreams was for all men and women to live in a equitable and free society not just in the United States but around the world. While his message has resonated and lead to change in many places, sadly there are locales and individuals who do not share his dreams. One of the saddest stories is that of human trafficking in India (see videos below).
Very few people think about this topic. I guess that is because it is so heinous most people do not believe one could have it in them-self to buy and sell another human being (let alone a child). While no one knows the number of people who are bought and sold, it is substantial (then again, in my view, one person is too many). It is one of the saddest realities around the globe. In light of Dr. King's message, please remember those who have no one to fight for them. May we one day live in a world where all of us knows peace.
