Human trafficking is nothing new. It has been around for centuries. In that instance, none of it has changed and it still continues today except that it is worse, much worse. Now 200,000 children are at risk in the U.S. and almost everyday someone is kidnapped and never to be seen again. Rarely a day goes by without some news on television that a young child has been taken. Many of them are forced into labor while others are sold overseas and find themselves in a horrific nightmare and a situation with no way out. Some are as young as five or six when they enter the slave trade, merely used for sex and pleasure. IF any of these young females rebel, refuse or cause trouble, they are easily drugged and as time goes on, they become addicted and controlled by their captors. Not only are they forced to work long hours servicing as many men as ten or more a day but they barely get enough to eat. What is really tragic about all this is that these poor little girls are trapped with no means of escape or ever seeing their family again. Being violated at such a tender age, many females do not survive the beatings and the constant sexual attacks on their frail bodies. Perhaps under those conditions it would be better to die than have to continuously endure being forced upon by nasty men who seem to find pleasure hurting them. What is sad is that they see the dark side, the evil of mankind and the depth their depravity takes them, showing just what humans are capable of. It’s such a pity that these young people are victims seeing something ugly like this before they really have a chance to live.
