We repeat it, every man knows that slavery is a curse.
"Whoever denies this, his lips libel his heart.
Try him; clank the chains in his ears, and tell him they are for him.
Give him an hour to prepare his
wife and children for a life of slavery.
Bid him make haste and get ready their necks for the yoke,
and their wrists for the come chains,
then look at his pale lips
and trembling knees,
and you have nature's
testimony against slavery.
-Theodore Dwight Weld
January 11th is Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the US. Human Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery. From Jan 1st-11th, we’ll be posting daily blogs with inspiration from the history of the movement to end slavery. Our resolution is to protect & defend the vulnerable and to restore & empower survivors. Join us in beginning 2012 by pausing to recharge our spirits as we carry on towards the end of slavery and the sexual exploitation of children.
