At work, every January my team has a competition to see who can lose the most weight.....whoever loses what they say they will lose goes to the BIG LOSER Luncheon. Since I lost 27 lbs, I went to Lunch on Monday with all the Losers! It was a great lunch!
Tuesday, we had an off site lunch meeting.
Wednesday, we had our Women's quarterly luncheon...............The speaker at the Women's luncheon spoke on a topic most of us are unfamiliar about........The topic was on Sex Slaves/Child Trafficking. The average child who is abducted into sexual slavery is between 11 and 13......it's mostly girls who are abducted. The children are abducted all over the world, even right in our backwards. The abductors are using several different approaches to take our children away from us. The abductors tell some of the children they will have better lives away from their families, they will become famous, etc. One of the biggest way a child is abducted is via the internet. Pop-up adds for Porn sites come up constantly when children are researching or playing on the internet. Parents, I urge you to closely monitor ALL of your child's activity on the computer. Please don't be a friend to your child, PARENT them.......Make it a point to know their friends, the Parents of their friends, all of your Child's passwords on the computer for email, blogs, games, etc. Please never divulge too much information on the internet. The information someone has on you or your child means they are ONE step closer to finding you. If you would like more information on human trafficking please go to www.sharedhope.org.
Peace be with you........In God's Grace I stand,
