The news is overwhelming at times. Okay… you’re right. The news is overwhelming. I tend to stay on the ‘ignorant’ side of things if I were just entirely honest with you. My heart is easily burdened rather than broken, and so I’m careful with my intake.

As we all know, I’m a little interested in Modern Day Slavery, and how I can be part of eradicating it. When people hear me talk about trafficking here in my own city, or in my own country, they are shocked. It cannot really be like that… not here! They tend to say this more often than not. Which is entirely okay because I was also that person at one time.

Here is what’s been happening in Canada… in the past month. If you believe in prayer, than start begging. You’ll quickly notice our young people are growing in a world where hollowed hearts are entirely fine if you have beautiful eyes to make up for your loss. This certainly cannot be okay, and we cannot believe this will just simply go away. Stand up people… our youth and young people are dying here.

There is plenty of news to go around, and overwhelm. I encourage you to remember, Our Lord calls us to allow Him to break our hearts for what breaks His, but not to burden our hearts. He even tells us to give Him our burdens and take His  yoke which is light… so lets give Him these young people, and live in the awareness of these issues.
