January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

While I normally write about art, I did want to take a moment to raise awareness about the travesties that take place every day for people all around the world. Several years ago, I was fortunate to take part in writing for an encyclopedia dedicated to prostitution and sex work. It really highlighted for me the dangers that exist for many people. As you begin your year, be mindful of situations where you could save a life. If the man and the young girl at the next table don't look right, pay closer attention. If the boy on the bus seems frightened and continuously looks around in fear, maybe try to find out more information. Be vigilant for your own safety and that of others. One extra mindful step can make a huge difference.
