This is not okay. That's obvious.
When I watch stories like this, something inside my heart begins to swell. First with anger and confusion, how could this really be happening?!
Then sadness and grief set in, I want to hold that sweet girl and tell her I'm sorry and that she is loved, precious, and valued.
Last, I feel helplessness, this issue is way too monstrous for a 27 year old girl like me to make a difference.
But that's just not true.
There is something I can do.
I can tell my little part of the world about this horrific form of 21st century slavery.
I can raise money to fund organizations that are preventing, rescuing, and restoring girls pulled, saved, and booted from this disgusting industry.
I can help prevent girls from desperately running into sex trafficking by teaching the ones in my life that they are valued, loved, and cherished as they are.
It's not a lot. But it is something! And you can do something too.
