Today served as a reminder that we cannot stop advocating and fighting injustice. I encourage you to look into where your food comes from and what it may be supporting.
Just World Theory would like to convince us that it could never happen to us, or the people that we know and love, but the truth is, it could. People who end up in trafficking situations are often not seeking these situations out, yet so many people believe they have chosen the lifestyle they are living. For most people being trafficked that is simply not true.
We have been so blessed on our trip to meet such beautiful and wonderful people. I learned on day 17 that people are good. People believe in change and sometimes the most unexpected circumstances turn into the best memories. Day 17 made me hopeful for the army that we are forming to fight sex trafficking. Today Ed joined our army as did Bonnie and Chris and today we were triumphant.
Today I felt known, loved and cared for. The people we meet along the coast are more than just generous passing strangers they have become family. It’s wild to think that a community of friends we have met in different cities that have different backgrounds and stories to share, but they all have caught onto our mission and have generously cared for us.
