Children Mirror the World
Invisible Chains: Sex, Work and Slavery
They covered a number of painful stories on Wednesday show.
Atlanta; ground zero for child prostitution.
Again, there are many missing children. But this time, for the purpose of prostitution. It is hard to believe this is what is happening right now in the most developed country. However the bigger the nation becomes, the more crimes we tend to see, which is really sad. It's time to go back to the good old days?
Cambodia; slavery, AIDS, sold by their parents, mere 5-year-old children, only $10
People from outside can see how terrible situations girls there are suffering from. It was really sad that the girl the NYT writer released soon become a prostitute again. I wonder if they know this or not, but they are missing chances to lead normal healthy lives.
Thailand; slave labor
I once heard that rich people, often from abroad, should hire local people to so that they can contribute to
Uganda; enslaved by a rebel army
I heard a horrible story. They force their boys to cook and eat human? I could never imagine that.
the Dominican Republic; sugar slavery
The same report as aired a couple of weeks ago. It once reminded me of buying Fair Trade products.
This is a silly side of this blog.
Wasn't he even closer than yesterday?
Anderson's face was constantly serious, but I did catch his smile! He laughed a little bit in a talk between Michael and I had a hard time understanding why he laughed.
