Supply & Demand

A rescuer was once asked, “is it true, that every girl who is rescued, is then replace with a new girl? Is what you are doing really making a difference?”

“I am not qualified to answer that question,” the man responded, “in order to know if we are really making a difference, you would have to ask one of the girls who has been rescued.”

Why does human-trafficking happen? The simple answer is because someone is buying. Someone is paying for it. There is good money in this business. As long as there are perverted men who want it and will pay for it, women will keep being forced into prostitution. It’s a messed-up world we live in. It makes me angry.

Another thing that is frustrating is constantly up-dating my catalogs whenever Better Way Imports sends out there up-date inventory list. “This is now out of stock. That is out of stock. The other thing is almost out.” It’s time-consuming. There’s a whole page where almost everything is out of stock. “Can I rip this page out and throw it away?” Then I remind myself that “out-of-stock” means its time for someone to rescue, train, and employ more girls to keep making bags and jewelry for us demanding Americans. This is a good thing.
