Seduced: The Grooming of America's Teenagers

We knew from the beginning that Seduced was/is not just a book.  It's so much more than that.  It's written by a woman who sits as president and CEO of Million Kids and Training and Outreach Coordinator for Riverside Anti Human Trafficking Task Force and even these perhaps, nebulous titles are not just titles.  There is so much more to all of this human trafficking business and to the efforts involving in rescuing these innocent children. 

There is so much that we as a society take for granted.  What most of us do not know is that the demons involved in the well vascularized world of human trafficking snake through the United States with a sick precision.  The pimps know what they're doing, how to do it and whom to target.  They know.

Book Review: Seduced: The Grooming of America's TeenagersBut, we don't. 

Most of us do not know that these predator/pimps make sweeping movements with their cloven-footed hooves and cull our youth with a few slick statements, personalized for their victims. 

Where do these predator/pimps find these slaves-to-be? 

They are playing video games like Clash of the Titans, Grand Theft Auto and World of Warcraft.  They are hanging out online, possibly chatting with strangers via Kik, Omegle, ooVoo or Vine or others.  Maybe, the intended victim has an Internet capable telephone where access to the world of bad strangers is inescapable?

We have to educate ourselves.  We have to be smarter than this seedy hell-on-earth existence.  We also have to watch our children.  Are they suddenly moody, angry, skipping classes?

We also have to know how to approach a teen who may be at risk. 

Please, educate yourself if you have young people in your home.  Why?  Your gentle writer lives in Fort Worth, Texas.  The sickened vine of human trafficking runs through this very city. 

Quotes:

It is all about forgiveness and grace.

More people than you have met in your entire lifetime can now influence your child.

Shame is the primary artillery of a predator.
