Read from March 12 to 20, 2012

I read this book because it was referenced in a Vanity Fair article that I did not actually read. Learning about sex trafficking in America with American girls as young as eleven years old is the kind of heavy reading that can change a person's life if allowed, or at least their awareness of this country and its faults. Not only was Rachel's account of her personal struggles moving, but her work to bring understanding to something that no one wants to talk about is one of the best examples of a knight errant, embodying those incredible words, 'To dream the impossible dream, to fight the unbeatable foe, to bear with unbearable sorrow, to run where the brave dare not go...' that I have recently seen. Please read it. Please let your perspective expand its borders.
