human trafficking

Recently on CNN I saw a special on human trafficking.  I was surprised to learn that this sordid, evil practice is being carried on right in front of us. We are totally unaware of it because we really don’t see the signs or ever pay attention to who they are. The girls involved in human trafficking could be sales clerks, waitresses, hairdressers, etc.  What I can’t understand that if that is the case, why some of the girls don’t make a run for it?  They can notify authorities but then I imagine, they would be sent back to where they came from or perhaps bring shame to their families so many of them remain silent and suffer the consequences.  That really takes lots of courage.  Sometimes  going to authorities young girls can meet a worse fate.   The sad part is who do you trust?  What is it about people who find pleasure in destroying someone’s life?
