Top 10 Facts About the “S” Word

What stood out to you?

To me what stood out was the number one fact.  It really blew me away to think about it.  I heard in another video I watched recently that the old abolitionists were able to bring down the transatlantic slave trade in 20 years.  How would our world change if we found a way to end modern slavery in just 20-25 years.  You and I could see the end of it!  Our children’s children would have to read about it in books and wonder what they would have done if they were in our shoes, living in a world with slavery still alive and well.  Today we everyday abolitionists take courage from folks like Harriet Tubman and William Wilberforce.  Tomorrow our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will take courage from our stories… IF we rise up and all play our part in bringing them a world without slavery.

Here are some ideas on how you can get started:

    I would say that it shocked me to think that the average cost of a slave is just $90. Wow! If it weren’t for the fact that it wouldn’t make the people stop using slaves, I would think that we could get a bunch of people to buy slaves’ freedom. $90 a year isn’t that big of a deal.
