This past saturday my sister invited me to do a 5k walk with her to support a really awesome organization- STOP CHILD TRAFFICKING NOW. Check out their website so you can learn a little bit more about the issue at hand. It was a really fun walk, specially since we had the boys (my nephews Josh & Kyle) walking as well. It was really interesting to hear some of the speakers beforehand.
Did you know child trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world? Many of us have this misconception that selling children for slavery, prostituition, or for whatever else is something that only happens in third world countries, or "not" in America. But the sad reality is that every hour a child is gone missing from Marietta, Georgia. It could be someone you know next time. That is the reality. It is scary.
On a happier note; We had a great time supporting a very important cause.
