Some people like to think that nothing bad happens where they live. They have this confident feeling that where they live is safe and nothing can ever go wrong. Here in Houston right by our school, there have been some cases of Human Trafficking right on 1960. Who would’ve known that it was that close? I interviewed student Rachel Tosh on human trafficking.
Tosh says, “I never knew that this kind of stuff was happening on such a busy road. I will keep my eye open and be more safe when
I decided to go on 1960.” Tosh has only been driving for a little bit so, she is kind of new to the roads. Everyone just needs to keep a good look out while they are on that road. Sources says that, “There are 21- 30 million human beings being trafficked in our world today. 200,000 to 300,000 are victims in the U.S.” (https://traffickingon1960.wordpress.com)
“According to some estimates, approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labor exploitation.” (https://www.dosomething.org/us/facts/11-facts-about-human-trafficking) See, even horrible things like this can happen so close. Be more cautious and warned when you’re out by youurself or even with a group of people. You never know what could happen.
