Slavery...it's a thing of the past right? WRONG!! There are currently over 27 million slaves in the world. This is more than any other point in history. When most people think of slavery, they think of African Americans working the fields, working endless hours with no pay. The only thing they are given is a small amount of food and a tiny room to live in with their families. This is not exactly the kind of slavery I am talking about. I am talking about boys and girls of all races and walks of life being kidnapped from their families and used for forced labor in factories or for prostitution. These people are drugged and beaten and have nothing left but a sense of hopelessness. They are sure that they will never be free again, they will never see their families again and they will die in this abyss of hell. Well I've got news for you, it's 2012 and it is time for some serious change! No more turning a blind eye. No more letting those people be ignored. It's time to bring these people to the light and set them free. It's time to put an END to slavery...for good.
"We've got to rise up, open our eyes up, be their voice, be their freedom, come on stand up!!"
