    #FlyToFreedom - End Slavery

     

    Supporting the end of child laborers and sex trafficking should be on everyone's list of helping to make this world a better place. I've witnessed children at 2 o'clock in the morning selling gum on the streets in Asia. My heart breaking with each encounter. A little boy, no older than four, selling homemade rice cakes folded neatly in banana leafs in a rain storm, again at an ungodly hour.  When I passed by again, he had fallen asleep to get out of the rain. Numerous stories, that still to this day has made a big imprint on my heart.


    I'm thankful for this forum to make a pledge to help STOP child laborers and sex trafficking. I'm aware that our United States Committee of Foreign Relations is working hard on trying to end the horrific plight of these young children. I pledge my best to keep people aware of their progress.  Most importantly to write to our representatives in Congress, thanking and encouraging them to continue the fight against slavery.
