Social Justice Saturday - Human Trafficking

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I haven't been blogging as much as I used to about social justice and other serious issues.  I'll address that in another post.  However, with January being Human Trafficking Awareness month and Valentine's Day just around the corner, I want to share an infograph.  What do the two have in common?  Chocolate.  Unless chocolate is labeled "fair trade," it's likely the product of trafficking in the form of forced child labor.  Innocent children are forced to work under harsh and dangerous conditions to harvest the cacao beans necessary for chocolate.  We present one another a token of love brought to us by those who don't feel loved.  Of course, there are all types of human trafficking that involved adults and children.  See for yourself:
