I was asked to select a video, from the International School of the Americas in San Antonio, view it and make a comment on it. I chose a video presentation that talks about a subject that the average person does not want to admit could really exist on the world.
I knew this was happening but did not realize how unaware and educated the general population is about this topic. My wife was taking a Humanities class, a couple of years ago, and they were discussing this topic in it. She came home one day and told me about a remark made by one of the male students in the class. He had made the comment that there was no such thing as human trafficking and forcing someone to be a sex slave. His theory was that a female could not be forced to participate in sexually activities if she really did not want to. HELLO ! There are so many things wrong with this statement that I would not even know where to begin. It made us realize how ignorant society, as a whole, is still about this subject.
I love that our young people are taking the lead and stepping out to the plate to educate the world about serious issue facing the world we live in today. With the help of today's technology students are discovering new ways to have their voices heard and express themselves. We need to educate people so that this can not continue to happen while we look the other way. These video presentations are a great way of doing this.
