Here’s another vintage dress borrowed from Lauren of Sparrow & Urchin. Because of Hurricane Irene (which is when I took these photos), I didn’t stay outside too long. The trees were blowing around like crazy and a branch fell nearby, so I was outside long enough to get just a few photos. I was more concerned about having trees fall on me than getting the photos taken. I know I am really behind in my blog entries and have been a bit out of it regarding my blog, but I will update you all on what happened during the hurricane and floods here in Northern NJ soon. It was bad, so I’ll leave it at that for now. I admit I’m rushing this entry out because I haven’t had time to really work on it, and I’m already a day late in posting my outfit entries this week. I apologize!
the wind was blowing my hair around. Sometimes it went in my face.
Reason why I’m doing this #17:
A few times I’ve talked about the sexual exploitation in women and girls from various places and the slavery involved regarding their circumstances (You’ll hear much more about this still to come as well). I want to talk to you about Wellspring Living located in Atlanta.
A couple years ago I found out that Atlanta, GA is one of the top 3 cities in the country for sex trafficking and one of the top 13 in the world where Every day between 200 to 300 children and teens are on the streets, being sold for sex. 90% of runaway girls become a part of the sex industry (It happens usually within the first 48 hours of them being “missing”. . so pray for those girls you see on the missing lists in papers and more. . because they’re more than likely on the streets). 1 of every 4 girls in general become sexually abused (maybe one of you reading this has a history of it even), and this can lead some of them to run away so they won’t be abused any longer, only to end up picked up by someone who forces them into the sex trade to be abused over and over again until there is no fight left in them, causing them to work the streets around the country for as many years as possible until they are numb and know of no other way than to continue in it. Wellspring Living provides safe homes for these girls who get rescued or do their best to run away from “the life” in hopes that they won’t get killed when caught running there. They provide recovery therapy and education for victims of abuse and for sexually exploited and trafficked girls.
