**reposted from a recent trip to SE Asia to investigate sexual exploitation of women and children.**

Calling it quits for the night here at this SE Asian town.

Found some girls crammed onto a stage behind a glass wall waiting for the boss to shine a light at them to say “you are the lucky one tonight who gets to have someone have their way with you.” How fortunate.

Then off to an area where young girls are peddled out of homes and finally ended up feeding lonely female prostitutes who were scattered through the park across the street from the Embassy of the United States of America.

What a great world we live in.

Underachievers and those who “look away” no longer need apply. You just get in the way. The stakes are too high and the moments of these vulnerable lives too precious. We don’t do this because of how it makes us feel. We continue to do this because sometimes we lose. And with these losses we don’t get a “do-over.”

I believe in this world and that we really can rally. Prove it!!!
