Why are you passionate about ending human trafficking?
I watched Tim’s video about his answer to that question and it got me thinking about what I would say. I think I’m passionate about ending human trafficking because its such a huge evil today that was going on without me ever being aware of it. When I found out about the reality of 27 million slaves in the world today, I just knew that this knowledge called me to action. I just want to fill my role in this endeavor to eradicate slavery. I am encouraged and enabled by the many people and organizations who are already working to that end.
“I’m passionate about trafficking because in my lifetime I was sort of the bully magnet. I was the one that people picked on, and even people in authority at that time didn’t back me up…so I knew what it was like personally to be affected by people taking advantage of me. The human trafficking is really the same thing on a different scale. It fits right in to who I am as a person.”
