In Plain Sight DVD-Stories of hope and freedom {Written by Emilee}

I was given the opportunity of viewing a movie called,

In Plain Sight
Stories of hope and freedom

This isn't a typical movie I'm drawn to, however, it was quite interesting and led me to understand what really is happening outside my little bubble.

RELEASING TO VIDEO January 13th 2015
 
Nashville, Tennessee- Executive Produced and Narrated by Natalie Grant, In Plain Sight: Stories of Hope and Freedom features six modern-day abolitionists as they fight sex trafficking across America. Premieres are scheduled around the nation in during January 2015.  Journeying to six US cities, the documentary opens the viewer’s eyes to what’s happening down the street "in plain sight". Through engaging interviews with numerous victims of sex trafficking, the force, coercion, and deception of the children and women becomes apparent. In the midst of the darkness, stories of hope and freedom emerge as each survivor shares how she was impacted through the work of a sex trafficking aftercare home.
 
“Most Americans are completely oblivious to the fact that thousands of women and children are enslaved within their own communities,” said David Trotter, co-executive producer. “This isn’t limited to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York. We’re talking about cities across America – from Sacramento to Little Rock to Baltimore – where the unthinkable is happening.”
 
“The reality is that children are being ravaged day in and day out. If you have a heart beating on the inside of you, I don’t understand how this couldn’t be important to you,” said Natalie Grant, narrator and co-executive producer.
 
With a focus on educating the American public and motivating people to take action, the campaign centers around three resources to be released by Word Entertainment. The DVD, music album, and 31 Day Devotional& Group Study Guide will be available in stores nationwide on December 23rd, 2014.

 In my opinion:
 Like I said earlier, this wasn't a movie I would normally watch, however, it made me realize that we can make a difference one life at a time. Sometimes, I like to watch documentaries because I can see what life is like for others. Then my problems seem small compared to their challenges. That isn't the only reason why I watch these documentaries. I like to learn as well and there is always some way to we can help those around us. As we serve others, we are serving God.
 
This movie taught me that there are some that were compelled to take action to help young adults. They were captured by their challenges and they wanted to do something about it. That takes courage!
 There were six women who had courage to take action. One woman created the Samaritan home to create a positive environment to help adults who have been victims of sex trafficking.  I still can't wrap my mind around why this happens to women across the U.S but it does. I also learned that in the U.S, we don't know much about sex trafficking because we hide it. In others countries, it is out in public so it is well known to everyone. The women are victims, not criminals which made it hard to hear their stories.
 Another home called, Redeemed was created as a safe home in Houston, TX. This home was based on physical, spiritual, emotional and mental ways to help these women. They even brought in horses for therapy.
 Overall, I was quite impressed with the six female abolitionists who shared their stories on how they have helped fight against sex trafficking. There is hope so if you know of anyone that is a victim of this horrible crime...do something about it. I definitely recommend watching this movie so we may all understand that there is hope to winning the ongoing battle against sex trafficking.
