For contest "I am NOT for sale." [link]

According to U.S. government estimates, thousands of men, women, and children are trafficked to the United States for the purposes of sexual and labor exploitation. An unknown number of U.S. citizens and legal residents are trafficked within the country primarily for sexual servitude and, to a lesser extent, forced labor.

As much as we in America do not want to recognize it, children are now being treated like a commodity on the black market. Sometimes they are simply relocated within their own country. More often they are moved across borders. They are sold for purposes like forced labor, prostitution, pornography, organ removal, or even as child soldiers. They are in high demand as cheap domestic labor, for farm work, and especially for sexual exploitation. Some girls, as young as 13 years of age, are sold as mail-order brides where they are isolated, abused, raped, and subjected to various forms of torture.

Unfortunately, child trafficking has become a lucrative business that is directly linked with highly organized criminal activity. It is well hidden underground and very difficult to find and deal with. This makes even the strictest laws against child trafficking hard to enforce.

I was wondering if I could feature this artwork, and, of course, link back to this deviation, on ravyncrescent.com/slavery.html ? I am currently re-doing the site and want to include artwork done by artists who seem passionate at ending abuse and slavery. I think your image would be perfect!

Such a simple photograph but it portrays the meaning well all the same.
