Well, it certainly isn’t every day that one gets to report some good news, especially after putting a downer on everyone’s game on Sunday. I heard plenty of complaints that I should have aired the story about human trafficking at the Super Bowl AFTER the game, not before, as it made some uncomfortable to imagine the young lives impacted horrifically by the sporting event’s dark side.
Whatever your religious affiliation, or lack of, I hope you will celebrate with me that, thanks to the kindness and dedication of a group of Christian men, THREE young women were rescued from the sex trade this past Sunday. Three girls, two of them now adults, were reunited with their families. There will be a long road ahead for them, some of it spent in the counseling office, but their nightmare is over.
Bless you, gentlemen. I know you will have a reward in Heaven, but you need lots of kudos down here as well.
Maybe we can have a repeat of this at every sporting event in the country forever after. That would, indeed, be good news!
