Human Trafficking, too close to home.

A couple was arrested for running a brothel in their own home. This is in Denver, near me. This is absolutely disgusting, but it reflects what a crisis this is in our world, even within our own city limits. I could just be sick. They had girls from China in their house, and their neighbor saw many men come and go in and out of the house dressed up in suits.

I wasn’t even away of this issue until 10 years ago, when my church educated me. Since then I have donated to the sex trafficking problem. This disturbs my soul so bad, and give me great anxiety. You can donate here, let’s end this now.

What the heck is wrong with people. This is the true definition of “For the love of money is the root of all evil”.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Martin Luther King Jr. is one of my favorite influential heroes. The way he advocated and advanced civil rights is remarkable. His speeches, boycotts, and acts lead to the end of segregation. I am so glad I did not have to grow up in this era of ignorance and racism.We are all humans and created equal. We all deserve the same rights, and opportunities.

Hypocritical much of America? This contradicts the bases of what America was founded on. I’m glad this bigotry and ignorance has come to an end in this regard. We can learn from other cultures, and expand our mind, interests and experiences. It is a great thing to have rich experience from differences. I love diversity. America is supposed to be the melting pot, where everyone is created equal, and the land of opportunity, for everyone, regardless of their race, age, sex, or religion. The home of the free and brave. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” ~Emma Lazarus

For my senior year of High School, I wrote a paper on him and got an A+. His speeches are so awesome and powerful.

He fought with passivism, and told his people to not fight back physically, and organized civil disobedience without aggression. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was powerful and wise. His quotes are very inspiring. He was very wise. He opens the mind and helped opened minds up from ignorance. His quotes are very powerful to me today:

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. Dr. martin Luther King, Jr.

Hate doesn’t accomplish anything.

_We must learn to live together as brothers or perish as fools_. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

_Darkness cannot drive out darkness- only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate- only love can do that_. Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
