The Driving Force

This blog has come about because of a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of girls who are trafficked into the sex slave industry around the world. We are about raising awareness of the shocking figures and statistics which show slavery is on the increase and is now more prevelant than ever in our history. It is too easy to be put off by the huge numbers (1.4 million girls and women, 27 million slaves) but we are putting our hand up to do all we can to support those who are stepping out and making a difference! We will be holding get-togethers, cocktail evenings, silent auctions and other fundraising events to both raise awareness and funds. Please join us! It starts with one step...

I like this quote for today:

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
Desmond Tutu 

This goes to the heart of the matter.  There is no sitting on the fence in life; if you know about it and ignore it, you passively condone it.  Man's greatest downfall has been passivity!  Find something that challenges your sense of right and wrong and do something about it.  Find a way to bring your intentions closer to your actions and there you will develop integrity.
