Warriors Needed

Saturday, January 26th, 2013 and is filed under Uncategorized

We are at war!  It may not be a war in the traditional sense, but make no mistake about it, it is a war.  This war has an enemy.  This war has victims.  This war has many battles being fought on many fronts.  Like any war, it takes warriors to fight these battles.

The enemy in this war is the evil of human exploitation.  It is an enemy that destroys its victim’s hopes and strips them of their dignity.  The enemy searches for its victims mostly among those living in poverty.  It looks for those with few opportunitites.  It tell its victims that it is going to help them and then it takes them and uses them or sells them to others that use them.  It is an enemy motivated by money and greed.  It is an enemy that is supplying a demand created by the lifestyles of others.

The victims in this war are used as a resource with no consideration for their well-being.  The victims are adults and children, men and women, boys and girls.  They are people.  People that had hopes and dreams for themselves and for their children.  Then they became slaves to evil masters that use them for labor and for sex and their hope is taken and their dreams forgotten.

To win this war we need warriors.  Warriors willing to fight for those that cannot fight for themselves.  Warriors willing to fight vigorously and with great resolve.  We must fight to give opportunity to the victims, change the hearts of the users and prosecute the suppliers.  The victims need education, job training, healthcare, and counseling.  The enemy must be aggresively attacked with the exposure of corrupt and complicit governments, severe penalties for individuals and public pressure applied to our elected officials.  For the users we must bring awareness and understanding of how they drive the demand.

What can you do?  Understand how the lifestyle choices you make affect others by creating demand for slaves.  Educate yourself on this issue and then educate someone else.  Be that public pressure.  Seek out organizations that are fighting the war and support them.  Get involved!

Maybe you are just the type of warrior we need to Fight Human Exploitation.
