Slavery hasn't been abolished

Unfortunately, slavery is alive and well. Unfortunately, people around the world (many here in the United States) live lives of bondage.

How can this happen? It happens because good people do not do anything about it. And I am one of those good people. These problems seem "too big" or "too foreign" for me to do anything about them. I am ashamed.

I have found something I can do. . . I can email my representatives and urge them to support the Child Protection Compact Act. It is simple. You can do it too. You SHOULD do it too.

We elect our representatives (if we even vote) and then allow them to make decisions for us, our nation, and our world with no input from us. They need to HEAR from us. They need to KNOW what is important to us.

We need to be the voice for those who cannot speak out for themselves.
