Not My Life
Thanks to everyone who came to Bailey Library's human trafficking awareness event to see the 2 showings of the film, Not My Life, on January 30. Attendance for both exceeded our expectations. Special thanks to our host, Jane Smith, for making us aware of this problem all around us, and whose dedication to this cause is inspiring.
We learned that human trafficking is everywhere. Statistics show in the U.S. there have been cases reported in all 50 states. Victims of modern slavery can be children or adults, U.S. citizens or foreign nationals, male or female. It is a world-wide problem that must be stopped.
All of us are touched by modern slavery every day--the food we eat, the products we buy and the consumer items we use on a daily basis probably were produced or touched by those held in involuntary servitude.
Take a stand. Right here. Right now. Today. Visit http://slaveryfootprint.org/ to see how your consumer choices impact global slavery. Then contact Dr. Cindy LaCom (firstname.lastname@example.org) to express your interest in joining an on-campus organization to raise awareness and combat child labor, sexual exploitation of women and children, involuntary servitude, and other forms of human trafficking.
Let's make a difference.

Like a good scare?
If you are looking for a good scary read for the Halloween season, who better than author Stephen King to scare the pants off you? His new book, Doctor Sleep, picks up with the life of Dan Torrence (from The Shining). Now middle-aged, Dan has been drifting around for decades trying to shake his father's legacy of despair, alchoholism, and violence. He settles in at a job at a nursing home where he uses his shining power to comfort the dying in their last moments. Then, he meets ups with 12-year old, Abra Stone, whose spectacular gift (the brightest shining ever seen) draws him into her life and awakens his own demons. An epic battle of good and evil results and he finds himself fighting for Abra's very life and soul!
