Today is Independence Day in the United States.
The United States of America has been a beacon of freedom to the entire world for centuries.
But now, something sinister continues to grow and undermine freedom to the core.
That undermining darkness is called slavery.
You may have heard of it before. It is also known as human trafficking or sex trafficking. It also goes by a few other names that you may not recognize:
There are those that believe that some of these terms are mutually exclusive.
But they are not.
The very act of sex trafficking is done for the purpose of selling sex to those willing to pay for it — aka: prostitution. While not all prostitution involves sex trafficking, all sex trafficking involves prostitution, and in some cases, pornography.
So as we grill our hamburgers during the day and watch fireworks in the evening and ‘remember’ freedom, let’s not forget the thousands of girls that are held captive this very day in the United States of America.
The land of free?
