We got to see Newsies for the first time this evening. Oh, I enjoyed it so much. Probably my favorite production to date. However, I cannot help but think about how there are still children and adults who are taken advantage of in this day and age. There are more slaves today than ever before in history (And America is not exempt from this statistic), there are women and children who are coerced and forced to sell themselves everyday, and there people who are payed little to nothing, sometimes indebted, to make the overpriced products we use and buy everyday. But they have no voice. We need to understand that we are the problem. We enslave people everyday through fast fashion, chocolate, cheap coffee, pornography, prostitution, electronics, and in many other ways. Now, I will end this rant with a couple questions: do you know where and who made the clothes you are wearing? Where was your coffee grown and by who? Who made the phone you are reading this on? Were any of the people who made those products paid fair wages? Did they have safe working conditions?
Speak up for those who are silent.
