From the Paper:"Today's world citizens are proud of the many accomplishments humanity has achieved. In many aspects, humanity has managed to improve people's lives, whether through laws, giving people an opportunity to enjoy their birth-given rights, through improved medical care, which offers the promise of life despite illness, or through advancements in technology, which have permeated every facet of life. In the U.S. alone, very recent history unveils the achievements of its citizens: slavery has been abolished; laws are in place to prevent child labor; the legal system guards many freedoms that people of a few generations ago could not enjoy; almost everyone has access to education; and many other achievements that today's citizens take for granted. Considering the many accomplishments in the U.S. and worldwide, most people will certainly approach the issue of child sex trafficking with disbelief at first. Others will ignore it, especially if they believe that it does not happen in their country. However, as unbelievable the problem is, and as much as some would attempt to ignore it, one fact remains: child trafficking is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, not only by countries most affected by it, but by the global community as well."
