I really feel strongly that this is a season of personal growth for our entire world.... an awakening of sorts. Even tho I'm still working more than 40hrs/week from home or as an "essential worker" at the pharmacy during our "time alone together", I'm trying to carve out time to seek knowledge as I am led to it.
Today, after lunch, I spent about 35 minutes at one of my favorite quickie education sources: https://www.prageru.com/ .
Today's dive into being better versed in the world of current events have left me 😭😭😭😭 . I may be worthless now for the rest of the day 😭, but this was information we ALL need to know exists so that we can put a stop to it collectively.
Child Sex Trafficking. (I hate even typing those words out 😭 ). I first learned about this industry (for sadly, it IS that) in 2016, and it hasn't left my mind since.
Here are some quick stats:
👤 8 Million children are trafficked each year
👤 Child trafficking is the fastest growing "industry" in the world today.
👤 There's been a 5000% increase in "dark web" child rape videos in the last few years (little kids... under the age of 12)👤 There are currently an estimated 250,000 children actively trafficked in the USA.
👤 The USA is the NUMBER 1 consumer of child rape videos in the world. 😭
👤 There are more people (30 million adults and children) currently being trafficked in the world than there has ever been in any time in history.
" It takes guts to listen, and it takes guts to engage."
I encourage everyone to take a listen to this video and be changed forever. Ignorance is not bliss. Collective ignorance is a large part of why this beast exists and it must stop.
Join me, won't you? If we all take an hour or so out of our "at home experience" to work on something that will improve other people's lives...... imagine how much better the 🌎world will be when we all step outside collectively, and breathe a big sigh of relief. Even if we were to have to stay cooped up for a month or two.... it's a small price to pay if we collectively make the world better when it's all over.... isn't it?
hugs and love friends~ liz
Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
