    Freedom. Free Them


    Paper Airplanes For Freedom


    This was filmed on June 29, 2011 at around 11:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the afternoon and edited then sewed up using a home computer.


    I didn't know all the individuals presented here. I am familiar with the nun and the security guard in the first part of this video. Every morning, I see the nun sit and read outside the convent where she resides. The security guard works for a school near my house. The rest of the citizens in my video were all unknown to me.


    One is a student from a college adjacent to our church. Another, who was busy making a living, is from our neighborhood and the rest, who happened to be in the area, are from other cities when I approached and talked to them.


    I chose to introduce them in this video for the reason that  I wish to help spread and deter this distress relating to modern day slavery among contributors and members of my community who come from different avocations and circumstances. It was also important for me to discover if they are aware of this problem our society is facing forthwith. I believe that being around enlightened, immersed and concerned individuals is being in a safe, intact and dependable culture and populace.


    I wanted to participate in this effort because I simply aspire to help in ways I can. The more people know about this, the easier it will be to convene skills, cooperation and will against this ominous concern.
