Stop The Traffik
I had hoped to have my post up earlier than this, but I have had issues with Blogger, as well as the computer. It resulted in me just giving up for a while and taking a nap. With that behind me and the technical items all in a row and working with me instead against me.......... here we go.
Have you ever given much thought to what has happened to all of these people that you hear about that just seems to disappear into thin air? One minute they are there living their lives as usual and the next minute *Poof* they are gone. There are some that you hear about on the news that have disappeared and weeks or months later their bodies are found. It sickens me to think of how crimes against the innocent seems to be growing at such an alarming rate.
Now think about those that are never heard about or from again. There are some that have the resources to keep the disappearance of their loved ones in the news media. Seldom though does it do any good. I am talking about those that are abducted and swiftly moved into the horror of Human Traffiking.
Again, as I was visiting Drunk On Barley today, I read David's post on this very subject. The statistics for this is mind boggling. In 14 short days it is hoped that a declaration will be presented to the United Nations with one million names on it. One million people declaring that
People Trafficking is wrong. One million people taking a stand and saying that they support STOP THE TRAFFIK in its call to: Prevent The Sale of People, Prosecute The Traffickers and
Protect The Victims.
You can help by going to the STOP THE TRAFFIK web site and adding your name to the declaration. Another way to help is to grab this graphic and add it to your blog. If one million names are to be collected, the word needs to spread. The best way I know to do that is through bloggers like us. Please point as many people as you can to this declaration. Let's All Stand Up And Be Counted. Let's All Be Heard And .............. STOP THE TRAFFIK!
