There are more people in slavery today than any other time in history.  Estimates are that as many as 27 million people are enslaved.  27 million!

Can you imagine what it would be like if you, your daughter or your granddaughter lived the following story?

I was only nine years old when I was playing outside with my cousins.  Everything was fine until that black van came around the corner.  I was counting for our amusing game of hide and seek.  I was almost done, “97…98…99…100…ready or not, here I come!”  Those were the last words I said before my ability to speak was taken from me.

The large hands that pulled me by my ponytail were the last things I felt before my body went numb and all emotions were taken from me.  I was shoved into a prison like cell that became my home for the next six years.

They held me captive and used me as a slave for all kinds of things that have scarred my memory and body forever. 

Can you imagine what that would be like?
