Fight For Those Who Cannot Fight For Themselves

The news is filled with stories of children who have gone missing, some from their own front yard. In Uganda, more than 30,000 children have been abducted and forced to become soldiers or sex slaves. Each year in this country, more than 100,000 children are forced into pornography or prostitution by adults who should know better. These children have no rights or choice and it is time for us to do something about it.

It is up to adults to stop the kidnapping, sale, and killing of children. Many notable people have taken up the cause, including Dani Johnson. During a recent segment of her radio show, she discussed how each of us can help others who are helpless. We need to tap into our purpose and begin changing the course of history.

Without our help, innocent children and people who are unable to fight for themselves will continue to be taken advantage of, making our world a scary place. Though you may think that one person cannot make a difference in this battle, you are wrong. Each of us has an obligation to right the wrongs that exist.

After listening to the recording of Dani’s radio segment, we will know how to take action. Everyone has a role to play and by fulfilling it, we realize why we are really here. Life is not always about protecting our best interests. Sometimes, it is about protecting the interests of others who cannot protect themselves.

After hearing Dani provide shocking statistics regarding injustices on our planet, anyone will be inspired to join this fight. You do not need to have money or be in the public eye, you just need to have a voice. None of us is in a position to ignore these situations and the sooner we realize it, the better our world will be.
