I was just talking about this at work today. It’s a very sad fact that most Americans do not know about. Also a lot of the prostitutes in our country are under age and most are slaves.

@SleepingWithNuns:  I have some patients that are adults now and were victims of this as a child. It’s horrible…awful…absolutely evil. So sad. Thank you for speaking for them and spreading the word. I don’t have the courage to speak out for them like you. =(

I read a report on this in school (psyc) and it is really heartbreaking and sad. Also, people denying it doesn’t help at all. I’m glad you are doing what you are.

It is so sad.  There was a town very close to where I went to college that had a very high rate of it.  There was a lot at our school educating about it and trying to take action against it.  But still so sad.

I met an wonderful albeit broken woman who was a victim of this. It took her 12 years to get free. What she endured gave me nightmares for weeks. I wish that movies were shown of this in every high school classroom. Only by raising awareness among the younger generation will this ever stop. Thank you for being a voice to the voiceless.

@SleepingWithNuns:  She is a very strong woman to have survived and even stronger to now speak out. What she endured is horrific and I don’t think she will ever completely heal from the psychological aspect of it. I watched her jump in fear from a man just brushing past her. She was sold around the world before ending up here. They had her strung out on drugs for years yet she got herself clean in order to be clear headed enough to escape. Now that is strength! Not many girls survive that long. I think the average life expectancy for a slave is a third of that. So sad!

I actually first found about about this from Law and Order SVU. Not sure what that says about me, but I was astonished and looked up more information. I’m suprised that so many people don’t know about it, or choose to believe it is not a problem. 

I donate money when I can, but I wish I could/would do more.
