Blue.


We know that pink is for awareness of breast cancer. We know that purple is for awareness of pancreatic cancer. What a lot of people don't know is that blue is the color for human trafficking. Blue is the color that raises awareness of the 27 million people that are trapped in the grip of slavery... The 100,000 woman and girls trafficked each day in the United States alone... The 1.2 million children trafficked for sexual exploitation... And the two children that are sold per minute into this veiled commodity. 

Jesus said, "You will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free." (John 8:31-32)

Its so sad how so many people know this is a problem, yet so little seems to be done about it.

I love this! I had a tiny bit of pink in my hair for a while (just because pink is my favorite color) but I might switch it to blue now! I have such a heart for those women and girls and would love to draw more awareness for them!

I have a heart for these girls being trafficked. I re-posted this on my blog. Next Wednesday I am going to a conference being held by Christine Caine from the A21 Campaign. I love what that ministry is doing in raising awareness and battling against the people behind the human trafficking.
