What lights a fire in you and causes you to take a stand in the face of evil – no matter the cost?
An excerpt from Looking Down The Barrel of A Shotgun: “An orphan in Africa, Russia, India or some other part of the world is in a desperate battle for identity, self-worth, hope, and even survival. But, an orphan or child that has been taken into the dark world of trafficking enters new and deeper depths of hell. They enter a kind of despair that is a heavy cloak that is most likely to end in their death – usually not of natural causes. It would be the equivalent to drowning but drowning very slowly and painfully.”

This post, written by Vince Giordano, has caused me to stop & think about the serious issues we face together as a human race regarding sex enslavement/trafficking of our children. That’s right, these issues are not someone else’s. They belong to you. They belong to me. The phrase, “don’t you have any human decency?” comes to mind.
What is human decency anyhow? Do we have the kind of human decency that will not stand idly by while millions of children are being kidnapped, enslaved, drugged, tortured, and raped daily? But instead would we courageously go head first into the danger, look down the barrel of a shotgun, if that’s what it takes to rescue them, one at a time, from the hell they live through each & every day? Or are we content to live the so-called American Dream of success & comfort by ignoring the issue?
Truth is many of us just don’t know what to do, or how we can help. So we don’t. In the future, Moms4Change will be sharing some information on organizations who are also looking down the barrel of a shotgun as they fight for the lives & freedom of God’s children who are victims of sex trafficking.
Please pray for Vince & his team who are going into India in a few days to find out how they can help bring light & freedom to the dark world of violence against children in that country. Do me a favor ~ comment on his blog post (at the link above) and let him know you’re supporting his efforts and are praying for him.
