I love that quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
One of my goals is to make sure people know about the injustice of child trafficking that takes place every day around the world.With that goal in mind, here are a few recent news reports I’ve written or was interviewed for about the the fight to stop child trafficking:
Stop Child Slavery Now, Charisma Magazine, November 2009
My interview with Ambassador Luis CdeBaca, director of the State Department's Office to Monitor and Combat Human Trafficking, Charisma Magazine, November 2009

And here's some of the extensive coverage that Born to Fly received thanks to our 09-09-09 fundraiser to stop child trafficking. As a result of these stories, thousands of new people learned about child trafficking and how to stop it:
