We live in crazy times.

For many of us, during lockdown, whatever part of the world we live in, we have had time on our hands in ways we never had before while busy earning a living, looking after the family, the job, meeting friends, worrying about things, shopping for clothes or not, depending on our budget. We have had to live quietly at home. No more gym, movies, date nights in restaurants or pubs, meet ups for coffee, play time with the kids in the park with their friends, church services and church socials or clubs and hobbies.

Amazing things came to our view. The water in the canals in Venice ran clear. Silvery fish darted here and there; dolphins swam in water where only gondolas went before.

You could hear the birds in the silence of the traffic that ran no more. The air pollution over northern Italy disappeared off the maps.

People panicked over toilet paper. Tins of sardines were rationed. Flour became more valuable than gold dust.

But as people sat at home and turned to the internet, they discovered another world hidden away behind the glossy view of glamour and glory in Hollywood, the high flyers and powerful.

Human Trafficking.

July 30 is World Day Against Human Trafficking.

What does this mean to you?
