Face to face with human trafficking.

Today I came face to face with a person who had every hair on my head telling me she was in deep suffering and probably being pimped against her will.  I am about to start combing the pictures of runaways and abducted girls.

Her pimp was standing pretty close, about 20 feet away trying to look uninvolved, but I gave her a slice of pizza, some bread, and two dollars. I told her about Father Joe’s place down the street where she could have shelter and food. She said she hadn’t known about it. I hope that man did not hear me give this information and that the resource may give this girl a possible way to escape.  I wish I had done more.

I hope I see her again and am able to ask her more about her situation.
