    Great piece, Marcia. While we are enjoying life, it is a good reminder to be looking around for those who exploit such events as a cover, and for those exploited. It’s a demonic distortion, as you’ve pointed us to before. Keep reminding us to look beyond, to stay awake.

      Thank you for reading, Beverly. Working with kids like you do, your wakefulness is a gift to our whole community.

    Thanks for bringing “sex trafficing of children” to the forefront. It is “too easy to get swept up in a moment” like the Super Bowl. David

      Thank you for your comment, David. You are right. It is so easy to get swept up in it all. And that same elation and getting swept up may be part of what makes people feel authorized to engage in these behaviors that hurt children. The fact that this happens certainly diminishes the well being of us all. Hopefully the more people are aware the less prevalent this abuse will become. We can pray for that!

  3. Marcia,

    This is so important for us to be aware of. We think in the U.S. that we’re distanced from such corruption. We’re blinded by our own lights. Thanks for all this information. We have to keep our eyes and ears open to those signs of the voiceless and the victimized, right in our midst.

      Thanks for your comment, Lyn. Yes, it’s not just at the Super Bowl. Some of the studies I read suggest that this Triangle Area and up and down the 85 and 40 corridors are some of the worst areas for human trafficking because we are at the intersection of all of these interstates. So, we do need to be awake and aware.
