Human trafficking our initial story begins….

Watch for the upcoming series on Human Trafficking, in the mean time take a look at this map to familiarize yourself with high-trafficked areas.
At the bottom of this posting, I’ve reached the limit of the number of links I can add and haven’t even begun to list all the articles on Human Trafficking that are no older than two weeks. Also called Modern Day Slavery I believe the information you’ll read, watch and hear in this series is going to shock you.
Is that cute little boy who was just adopted by your neighbor really adopted, or is he a trafficked boy forced into sex acts after the lights go out at night?
I don’t want to make you suspicious of your neighbors and at the same time I’d like to increase the awareness of Human Trafficking because it’s a $35 Billion dollar a year industry. What I find so very odd is with all the articles and with the movies, MTV, the Canadian Government Posters, with all this media, Why is it very little of the population of the United States realizes how big of an issue this is?
We loose 500,000+ Persons under the age of 18 per year, PER YEAR, that are not accounted for through other crimes. These children just vanish.
Do you really believe children can vanish off the face of the earth, or do you believe other things can happen to them? Since we’ve already accounted for 1) family abductions, 2) Criminal Abductions (all kinds) 3) Presumed deceased without recovering a body, the only other options are 4) Run Aways 5) Human Trafficking
