Very disturbing. Made me literally sick to my stomach.
Brilliant… I hope this puts a dent in what’s happening in Atlanta. And in cities around the country.
Thanks for posting…
Done in as creative and gracious way as possible – considering the topic. And as the mother of two daughters, I got both shivers and chills, and tears in my heart and throat. May we save these precious children – so that they know and remember that they ARE precious.
Few things make my heart as sad as the thought of millions of women and girls around the world forced to be raped daily for some guy to profit from it. I don’t see how anyone can’t be disgusted by it.
Oh, I just took the time to watch this and I am nauseous and blurry eyed. This is an issue that grips my heart like no other. Calling those who exploit little girls evil almost seems too trite. It’s hard to think of a word to describe the horror that those who practice such wickedness invoke in my spirit. Can I pass this video on as well?
Absolutely. Please do.
The longer we live in Asia, the more stories we hear, from real people, who have been impacted by trafficking. And it is sickening. Sickening especially how high up in government the corruption goes, and we are just so overwhelmed right now at the realities that real change has to start at these highest levels of laws and culture. It just feels so discouraging when officials being bribed at borders is a common occurrence. . . .
all the more call to pray, pray, pray.
Thanks for sharing this.
Okay, my husband and I just took time to watch the video– I hadn’t watched it when I commented previously. I will definitely be sharing on my site, as well, because I do think it is rich with such good images. I love how creatively it was done, too, in such a way as to really appeal to a broad range of people. I think the really difficult thing about making a film about child sex trafficking is that it is virtually impossible to paint a real picture of the issue because the real picture is too graphic for the masses. And the difficult thing about “toning it down” is that I wonder if more people can turn a blind eye, can walk away unchanged or unmotivated. But, of course, people wouldn’t be able to watch a movie about the real realities of this issue– or at least not many could stomach it. Myself included.
Regardless, it’s a rich concept and fantastic tool for discussion . . . and I’m glad you shared it!
