“Ending this crime (of human trafficking that is) so monstrous is not a political issue; it is an American imperative, and a human responsibility. This is why there are still modern-day abolitionists. And this is why the rest of us should join them.”
Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, 2008
The sale of humans and most wretchedly, the sale of children, must bring outrage. Why are we often slow to respond? This concept of human responsibilty is grounded in the fear of God. Who else shall hold humans accountable for their action or inaction?
Shall we see what God thinks when we shirk this responsibility?
None calls for justice, nor does anyone plead for truth; they trust in vanity and speak lies. They conceive mischief and bring out iniquity…Therefore judgment is far from us; nor does justice overtake us. We wait for light, but behold, dimness; for brightness, but we walk in darkness (Isaiah 59:4, 9).
He says we are trusting in vanity, speaking lies, and walking in darkness.
The victims wait for light, our light, THE LIGHT.
