Poetry itself is a powerful weapon and I appreciate you using it as a vehicle to demonstrate a sad reality that must be surfaced to kill. Good luck!
Very powerful piece that captures the seriousness of what many turn a blind eye to. It is an issue that needs to be addressed. The danger is real and the children are the most vulnerable. Thank you for highligting it.
Thank you for bringing this despicable situation to light in your well-crafted 6 word poem. Child-trafficking, pedophilia, etc. must be addressed and stopped! There is far too much denial and silence, but I do believe times are changing as more and more individuals speak out against this tragedy that affects all of us on many levels...
Hello Diana - i've missed you!
Now here you are, being a voice of social conscience through the weapon of poetry, bringing these shameful statistics to the fore, bringing the dark to the light.
Yes I was on a mission trip to Cambodia that's involved in "buying" back children sold into that sort of industry, I'm appalled that a child can be exploited into this industry, those stats are reprehensible, beautifully written, well dine. Blessings, Roy
Excellent 6 word poem Diana. I read your notes in unbelief so I checked the reference you quoted and was horrified to learn that you are right.
Thank you for bringing attention to a dispicable story. While many are taken by family members, there are still THOUSANDS taken for a multitude of reasons and most of them bad.
Thank you again for sharing.
These six words tell the saddest and scariest story ever. Human trafficking is something that needs to end. Good artwork. It could be used with a different words for ending hunger and poverty too.
Good luck in the contest.
Keep writng and stay healthy.
This is a very powerful poem, and I only wish I had a six for it. Thank you for providing us with staggering facts of children trafficking. This is absolutely gruesome. Thanks for this information, and I will read the article you provided a link for.
The child depicted in the picture is striking. It's clear that she is ill - all the marks on her face, they speak louder than words.
Great artistic presentation and message - "If you don't stop this, who will?"
I am not even mentioning contests here, but this should do very well, in fact, I may be looking at the winner.
Diana! You're back! I was wondering where you have been. Glad to see you writing again.
Thank you for bringing attention to this horrible thing that is happening in the world. Your six word poem brings light to the situation. Very few of our running candidates said that they are working on this.
Loved your insightful message. We are involved with the OUR ( Operation Underground Railroad) in Utah. It is so sad and unbelievable how rampant trafficking is. I hope and pray these groups can help the situation.
