Anti-Slavery Day

Today is anti-slavery day and if you search the social media websites then you will be able to find so much information about what is happening today around the world. I have been posting on my Facebook bits and pieces all day to challenge and inspire and inform and this is when Social media makes sense.

This morning I read a great quote from Martin Luther King Jr. that made me think again.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

Last weekend I was given the opportunity to travel to Budapest in Hungary along with 30+ “warriors” who area about fighting Slavery and Human Trafficking. It was a Salvation Army conference and you can see a short video about here European Anti-Trafficking Response Launched It was a brilliant thing to be a part of and it was history in the making. I am honored to be a part of something that is world changing and especially here in Italy.

This week some friends have blogged about it too and so I suggest that you check out & Mel and Lucy Now I am hoping you can access everything as I am still working it out myself.

That’s it – I was made to speak out and I will continue to do so!

As the Founder of The Salvation Army said, “I’ll Fight” What Fight are you involved in?
