A Mother's Perspective: Sex Trafficking in Canada

"Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent." 
- Dalai Lama


I recently was honoured to be given the new post (no pun intended!) as Editorial Writer/Blogger for a non-profit organization with it's home base in Seattle, Washington called compassion2one.



This organization is one that I recently highlighted in my post Sex Trafficking: Let's Pay Attention!

You can find out all about compassion2one (C2One) in that post or on their website here.

I was commissioned by Steve Gutzler, President and co-founder of C2One to write an article series highlighting the plight of child victims caught in the horrible sex trafficking trade here in Canada.



The first article in my series was published yesterday by C2One and I ask you all to take a moment to read, tweet, share on Facebook and any other social media site you have access to in order to bring attention to this cause.



I also ask that you please share your thoughts both here on my blog and on the C2One site. We need to highlight the issue of sex slavery in Canada and remind people that these innocent children caught in this seedy world are not worthless "whores", but young human beings who are being victimized and not being appropriately cared for by our legal system.



I now lead you in the direction of my article - and thank you in advance for standing up and doing your part to spread the word.

Thank you to Steve Gutzler and his wife Julie Gutzler for founding compassion2one and for giving me the opportunity to help bring the issue of sex trafficking in my country - Canada - to peoples' attention.

Steve & Julie Gutzler, Co-founders, compassion2one


Let's help save our children. We can all do our part.



This is just the beginning of mine.

Smiles,

  1. Hi Lora,

    I am so thankful to have you as a contributor to our cause. Your thoughts are real and thoughtful. It is important that we hear from the mother's perspective. We are looking forward to your future contributions and thoughts on the sex trafficking from a mother's perspective.

    Thank you for your caring work,
