The Prayer of Forgiveness by Paulo Coelho

The tears I shed, I forgive.The suffering and disappointments, I forgive.The betrayals and lies, I forgive.The slandering and scheming, I forgive.The hatred and persecution, I forgive.The punches that were given, I forgive.The shattered dreams, I forgive.The dead hopes, I forgive.The disaffection and jealousy, I forgive.The indifference and ill will, I forgive.The injustice in the name of justice, I forgive.The anger and mistreatment, I forgive.The neglect and oblivion, I forgive.The world with all its evil, I forgive.

Grief and resentment, I replace with understanding and agreement.Revolt, I replace with music that comes from my violin.Pain I replace with oblivion.Revenge, I replace with victory.

I will be able to love above all discontentment.To give even when I am stripped of everything.To work happily even when I find myself in the midst of all obstacles. To dry tears even when I am still crying .To believe even when I am discredited.

Human trafficking is sometimes called the ”new slavery”, because it retains many of the same characteristics of a slave/master relationship. In the new slavery, rather than serve one master or in one locale, victims are passed on around among a variety of ”owners” … and are ultimately disposable...

Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Anan

”Sexual Exploitation and abuse by humanitarian staff cannot be tolerated. It violates everything the United Nations stands for. Men, women and children displaced by conflict or other disasters are among the most vulnerable people on earth. They look to the United Nations and its humanitarian partners for shelter and protection. Anyone employed by or affiliated with the United Nations who breaks that sacred trust must be held accountable and, when the circumstances so warrant, Prosecuted”.
