Buy the Book   The Diary of Jasmine Grace: Trafficked. Recovered. Redeemed.
“A Day Out of the life – Looking Back & Moving Forward, Together”
October 27, 2017

Some people’s voices are heard loud and clear.
Some people’s voices are quiet, because of a personal fear.
Still, there are others, who don’t have the choice to speak.
Even if they had chance, their words would be too weak.
Some girls are burned, trafficked, and beaten.
Some people’s livelihood and values are purposely cheapened.
All forming a part of an evil economy,
They are seen as nothing more than someone’s commodity.
The reality we live in, that we often chose to ignore.
Is that some people are slaves, maybe even somebody next door.
We thought we got rid of slavery back with the Civil War,
But we don’t realize that today there are more slaves than there ever have been before.
We can sit back and feel bad, we can shake our heads in disbelief,
But unless we take action, we’re not closer to ending their grief.
Will you do nothing about their suffering, turn a blind eye and pretend?
Or will you be one who fights, to see their nightmare end.
