In class we discussed sex trafficking. Most of us are under the impression that sex trafficking usually happens more frequently in foreign countries than in does in the United States. I was surprised to find out that it’s really a common thing all over the world; even in our area. Three years ago there was a sex slavery ring bust in Washington Co. Tn. That really hit close to home, because that is home. We watched a news clip about sex trafficking in northern Virginia where they busted a ring leader. Talking about how close to home where a lot of this was happening really surprised me. It’s caused me to be more conscious and aware of my surroundings because it’s really happening right under our noses.
