Don’t hit snooze on this alarm.
Like many people, I have a snooze button on my alarm clock. I seldom use it. Perhaps just once or twice in 10 years. But I know that when I have hit it, I lay waiting, knowing that it will sound again.
Let me sound an alarm that I hope you will not “snooze” through.
Children are being targeted by human traffickers every minute of every day in the US. And they are using tools we as parents and grandparents have given them to use. Smartphones. The bait of entrapment.
Pay a kid $10 to friend you and then ask all his friends to friend his “new friend”. Because this second level of “friending” is from a familiar person, kids dive right in. False profiles, false enticements, kind words, and then…….. the request to meet somewhere seemingly innocent. Remember, the “target child” thinks they are meeting someone their own age. From their group of “friends”. Why not meet up at the mall, the soccer field, a concert (they offer free tickets)? It all seems so innocent.
But it is not. It is happening to our kids and grandkids right now and they are too innocent to realize the situation they are strolling into. Parents. Dont SNOOZE this one.
Don’t wait to have these discussions. Don’t wait until a friend goes missing. Prevent the atrocity.
Help us prevent the atrocity by raising awareness.

Increasingly in the US we see signs of human trafficking. Don’t be surprised! It is a highly profitable business and there are many young girls and boys easily entrapped then enslaved for a period of profitability to their captors. Economics without morals is ugly.
But what is even worse to me is turning a blind eye. But what if turning a blind eye is because you don’t know what to do? Let us help you with that.
When you see something out of sorts like the US Postal worker in California did last week. He called police when he found a girl crying on his route. Or the flight attendant who noticed a young girl on her plane who looked frightened by the man next to her. She had security meet the plane on arrival. Or the realtor who noticed trash bins at the street in front of an elegant home that was supposedly empty and for sale.
When you see something, do something.
- Snap a photo with your phone. Get a license plate, a street address or facial shot of those involved.
- Google human trafficking help near me. Get the phone numbers and save them to your contacts.
- As you go about your daily routine, don’t look past what seems odd. Ask yourself if the oddness could be a sign of someone trapped as a modern day slave. Then follow 1 & 2.
Join us in ending this modern day atrocity. Refuse to turn a blind eye.
