I really do not have many words for this post.
… IN AMERICA.
You must read her post, 40 Confessions of a Trafficking Survivor; her bravery and honesty blow me away. A few of the confessions she shares are:
“#1 – It’s not that I thought I’d have a hard time making it to age 18, I just assumed I never would
#7 – When men look at me lustfully I wonder if they’ve seen pictures of me on the internet
#8 – It’s rare that I feel safe
#9 – I am in mourning over my childhood – I desperately wish that I could act like a kid again but I’ll smack you if you treat me like a one …
#11 – Some days the road to healing doesn’t feel worth it… it’s just too hard”
Reading these, and hearing her story, absolutely wreck me.
Please read her story and share it with someone else.
I am left speechless, with this verse in my mind:
“If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.
… But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead…” (1 Cor.15:19-20)
