They may stop off in Merrillville, rent hotel rooms, take out an ad, and within minutes they are in business. They may stay up to a week, and then they are off to another town. Seeing how diverse and enormous this hideous crime is, how could we ever hope to eradicate it? The best thing we can do is raise awareness of the issue and take money out of the crime. We have to call for stiffer punishment of customers. If at a mere click of the mouse, thousands of opportunities are available to would-be sex customers in our area that tells me we aren’t being tough enough. And because we aren’t tough enough on offenders, sexual slavery is on the rise. But if we crack down on the crime of sex for money, the money source will dry up! We need to spread the message that real men do not buy sex or have sex with children. Thirty years ago, drunk driving did not get as much public attention, but then some mothers got MADD.

You can start today! Tell someone about the problem of sexual slavery at every opportunity. As awareness of this hideous crime increases, changes will begin to be made. I look forward to working together to put an end to sexual slavery, and I pray the Heavenly Father uses us to show his love to these precious children. -VYTVYLPUMVYTH[PVUVU^OH[`V\JHUKV[VNL[PU]VS]LKLTHPS:OHULH[TVTLU[\T'NTHPSJVT
