    Episode 127:Part II: Child Slavery, High Stakes, and Forgiveness

    In Part II we learn that even though Umaru is physically held as a trafficking victim and later threatened with prison, his spirit will not allow him to submit.  He fights back through hunger strikes, protests, and is even willing to lay down his life to save another. Throughout it all, he couldn't understand how in the name of religion his child enslavement began. During his lifetime Umaru witnessed the trafficking of hundreds of minors. He learns that he is the chosen one. He lives to tell the story, forgive his captors, and to help others as a civil rights investigator.

    Episode 126: An Incredible Story from Victim of Child Slavery to Civil Rights Investigator. Part I

    At the age of 7 Umaru was selected by his family to be the Chosen One. That meant that Umaru would have to go with a religious leader to receive the teachings. But instead young Umaru would become a child slave. After his escape he fell into the hands of human traffickers. Umaru's search for freedom took him across four countries.  He faced death and often didn't know how he would make it. Each time he was able to get away from his captors and accept the help and kindness of others. Listen to Part I of his story. It reminds us of why we do this work.

    Episode 125: I'm not mad at them. They were bad people. But where were you?

    Episode 125: I'm not mad at them. They were bad people. But where were you?

    Where were you? The name of the book and words spoken by an 11 year old abused and traumatized trafficking victim. Unlike Anne Frank who understood that people's hearts were still good, this victim that suffered horrific abuse is not questioning the actions of bad people. She understood that bad people did bad things. She asks the good people of the world a very poignant question: Where were you?  Matt Friedman of The Mekong Club has been there to answer for 30 years.
