something to say…

What do you have to say?

How do the following statements make you feel?

…it is said, that if a child goes through foster Care all their lives until they are 18, 80% of them will go to prison…

…multiplied thousands of Ethiopian children face severe disease, face underdevelopment physically and mentally, and face death from malnutrition each year…

…multiplied thousands of children around the planet are literally sold and bought in the extreme labor trade, or the Sex trade…

…The average age of a sex slave is 13 and getting younger….

…I have met girls rescued from the sex trade as young as 6 years old…

…because of the cost and corruption many families and children around the world do not receive the medical care they need, and die of sickness that in our time should not kill them…

….there are millions of children left with no parents, because of HIV/AIDS…

What do you think when you read these statements?

  1. My honest thoughts…

    I get angry.

    How can people read or hear this and DO NOTHING at all except feel bad…

    How is it that over 300,000 AMERICAN children are at risk of sex trafficking (US Dept of Justice), yet most Americans don’t even know what it is…

    When will people accept the responsibility and DO SOMETHING?

    What better time than NOW?!!

  2. my first thoughts are: these statements should move us to action… there is no more time to sit around and wish there was something we could do to change the situation. these statistics are shocking and very sad. so lets get going!!

  3. These statements are alarming and shocking, especially the comment about the average age in the sex trade being 13 years old…
