What is "1000 Breaths"
On the last day of the year in 2010 and 2011, a special event called "1000 Breaths" awakened audiences to their own innate power of freedom as well as supported a movement to free the enslaved children trapped into a prostituted lifestyle they do not truly choose.

Today – 1/11/11 is Human Trafficking Awareness Day!
January 11, 2011 has been proclaimed Human Trafficking Awareness Day. There are organizations throughout the country that are doing great things to create the awareness so needed around this issue. I found one website in particular that lists some of those happenings by state, check it out:
Jennifer Durant of the Seacoast Media Group estimates that 800,000 to 900,000 individuals are trafficked across international borders worldwide. In the United States alone, 18,000 to 20,000 victims are trafficked into or within this country every year, with approximately 80 percent of these victims being children. She says, “Human trafficking is modern day slavery that involves the sexual and labor exploitation of millions of men, women and children worldwide. Human trafficking has no borders. Victims can be abused within their own communities or moved throughout the world to avoid detection, forced to live a life of servitude."
Here are a couple other links I wanted to share:

What can you do? Share some of those stats with your contacts, participate in one of the many happenings today that are taking place to create awareness, and - of course - support if you wish the short educational film, Indoctrinated, so we can get this information out to all parents and children.
