Making the Impossible Possible! Ending Human Trafficking – in small steps…

I love this post by Michelle Brock for the Hope for the Sold website. I’m including the heart of it here.

“The impossible can always be broken down into possibilities.”

The impossibility of ending human trafficking glares at us every day. It tries to master us, discourage us, defeat and cripple us. Injustice personified mocks our efforts, tests our motivations, and undermines our actions.

But what if we broke down the fight against sex trafficking into a set of possibilities?

It is possible to teach our children to respect women.
It is possible to say no to paid sex.
It is possible to practice integrity.
It is possible to adopt, foster, or sponsor a child.
It is possible to start supporting fair trade.
It is possible to speak up when you see abuse.
It is possible to become more generous toward those in need.
It is possible to stop supporting the pornography industry.
It is possible to start something super creative to fund anti-trafficking efforts.
It is possible to volunteer at a safe house.
It is possible to learn more about what is going on in our world.
It is possible to say no to legalization of prostitution.
It is possible to call a hotline to save a sex trafficking victim.
It is possible to change company policy.
It is possible to sign petitions and change human trafficking laws.
It is possible to reject the status quo and live sacrificially.
It is possible to get trained to identify human trafficking victims.
It is possible to shut down avenues for exploitation.
It is possible to change.
