No to Slavery

I have so many questions, how? I ask, can man harbor so much hatred, how can man take advantage of his fellow-man in this way? How do people wake up and decide to profit from another’s woes?

Torn and Confused

Feel so disgusted writing this, I feel so numb inside and still feel helpless. I have no one to tell, who would listen anyways without judging me.
