Life is not always fair. Things will not always go the way we expect them to. People will not always be there and we will experience disappointments along the journey. However we must always aim to attain the best for our lives and find the strength to rise above the things that were meant to hold us back.
We are living in modern times where we do not expect certain things to happen but today as we speak we have millions of women and girls who have been forced into the sex slave industry. At present it is one of the fastest growing industry globally. Young girls are at risk, vulnerable young women are at risk.
I urge women to talk to their teenage daughters about the threat of sex slavery. Young women I want you to be aware that you need to be careful about those with whom you associate because it could be that very person who befriend you who is paving the way for you to become a sex slave. Knowledge is key so be aware that the evil of sex slavery is on the rise.
Don’t be imprisoned by your own fears. Don’t allow yourself to be trapped in a world where you begin to feel that you don’t have the strength to stand on your own two feet and make the decisions for your life or charter the course for your happiness. Don’t allow fear to hold you a prisoner. Face your fears and conquer them.
If only we as humans could find it in our heart to look past class and race and see each other as human beings. God made us all equal but mankind have divided us into groups and have created social status because although we are one some want feel more superior. My question is, in the final judgment will there be two heavens one for the ruling class and one for minorities. Will God look on us and select us based on the color of our skin. We all need to look inward to the man in the mirror and change our ways.
The separation of children from their parent which is current happening as immigrants seeking a better life try to enter the United States is a cruel and inhumane act. These children are caught up in something which they have no control over. Their lives are already been traumatized by them having to flee what they knew was home to go to a place unknown. How can they ignore the cries of these innocent children and snatch them from the arms of their parents. Why is it okay to subject these children to psychological and emotional trauma. If these immigrants have to be turned back so be it but in the name of humanity do not separate children from their parents.

Refuse to entertain negativity. Life is too short to live it in anger and be at odds with those around you. Practice forgiveness and entertain positivity.”
