I had a lump in my throat and sweat in my eyes.
This morning, I sat listening to these facts…
- 1.2 million children around the world are taken for child trafficking for the purpose of exploitation, prostitution and servitude.
- 1 out of 10 are Filipino children.
- Every 12 minutes, a Filipino is trafficked.
- $31.6 Billion dollar ‘business.’
Called To Rescue, a non profit organization launched it’s efforts to go into all out war against child trafficking this morning at Victory Ortigas Center.
Dr. Cyndi Romine explained what the problem was and what needed to be done.
Cecille Obando related what we can do.
It’s not their fault. They ARE the victims. The bad guys are the bad guys.
Not doing anything is just as bad as patronizing them.
Common and normal are NOT synonyms. Just because it’s common, it doesn’t mean it’s normal.
Something has to be done.
But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea. (Matthew 18:6)
