We all dream of a utopia, a place that we can all escape the harsh reality of what we have come to accommodate as the nature of mother earth. A place that all the harsh reality that we live in can all be nothing than just a distant memory.
Maybe, if all this was possible then we would have solved half of all the trouble that we go through. Harshly, some wishes are just best left buried in a little box in our minds. We still need to wake up to the realization that we live in our world that the sad reality dawns in, we are in debt, struggling to curb down the economy finicality and sadly after years of struggling for the abolishment of slavery we are still subjected to modern slavery.
Human trafficking, as odd that may sound to most of our ears, it still is an issue that we are trying to curb down in this country. Though its not as colonial as we knew of it, no more ships ferrying black men in chains through the Atlantic Ocean to work in cotton fields, its not that far fetched as having our own citizens stuck in a foreign land subjected to hard labor and denied access to get back to their own country.
Yes, until we raise that much awareness is when our government can come in. But this begs the question, is it enough? Is it enough that only when we make noise does the government come in, and how does the government define human trafficking? Does giving away young girls to early marriages define as human trafficking?
There is a lot of discussion to be hard on such topics, more than words can be written and spoken. Accumulatively through shared action by the government and the local citizens can we start protecting our citizens from such demonic acts.
