Human trafficking can happen to anyone it is a serious matter that really takes a toll on the victim. Mental health really is a huge problem that can really lead to bigger problems, like doing drugs and being a meth head .Human trafficking really is a serious thing, and its real, just because it hasn’t happened to someone, doesn’t mean that it never will, nor if they will ever experience it. There really does need to be even more awareness around tons of groups of people, even in deserted areas as well. I believe that human trafficking can relly take a toll on any victum men and women.

  Human trafficking it takes over the victims mental health because they think this is the only thing that will get me through life. Many victims can’t find the right help because they think they need to keep it a secret from other people like family. Even men can be subject to human trafficking which they think they it’s their only options to make cash and make a living.There are many helping resources that can provide personal help for victims of human trafficking so it doesn’t go global so that everyone doesn’t have to know they were subject to selling their body.

Dear Gabriel:

I am intrigued by your topic because it really is an important topic to write and think about; as it really can kill a person on the inside and out. Subjectifying a person merely on their appearance or gender is a real crime as there are many sick people in this world that just do it for fine or money. Many lives are altered and destroyed as it can be the reason that suicide is high or the reason that someone is mentally unstable.

One sentence that had caught my attention was: “..just because it hasn’t happened to someone, doesn’t mean that it never will, nor if they will ever experience it”. This sentence really caught my attention because in this world, the person that can kidnap someone can really be a trusted adult or friend. Awareness is a huge factor that generations should understand and get to spread around.

Thank you for writing about this important issue as it can really be a lifestyle for someone and need the help from a community that is willing to open up their arms for them.

The human trafficking that I remember when I was in Puerto Rico in the news you saw that there were not many missing people but now I have seen many missing people and more are young or are children who are caught and killed as happened with Rosimar who found her nearby Where I lived in Puerto Rico, the most that are disappearing are many young people and in truth this is very ugly.

Dear, Gabriel
I agree with your point many people tend to not talk about Human Trafficking which is a big problem. I especially agree with the point you made that it can happen to anyone, and it can also affect the person mentally. Human Trafficking doesn’t get spoken about often when it should in order to make sure it doesn’t happen. It happens everyday and still people don’t do much about it when they should. The streets should be a place where we can walk without being afraid of anything. There should be protocols in order to keep people safe.

Dear gabriel :
I liked your post “Human Trafficking,” because people do not talk about this topic as much as it should be.people tend to ignore this topic even though it is an important one.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Human trafficking can happen to anyone” I think this is important because many people think that they are not at risk.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because enjoy when people bring up topics that other do not.topics like this should not be ignored

Dear Gabriel, I agree with you that human trafficking is something that can happen to anyone.
I am very happy to read your documentary, it seems to me something very interesting, “Since at this moment, a lot of human trafficking is happening”
A phrase that interested me a lot was the one you put “That people can be left with a mental disorder after the event happens to you, it seems strange to me since unfortunately some do not return home

Dear Gabriel, I liked this topic because not a lot of people talk about human trafficking all over the world. This topic needs to be talked about more often because this is also a very serious matter. Human trafficking can take a big toll on the person that got kidnapped and their families. You should never ever walk alone in the dark late at night because that’s when you will be kidnapped. Many victims of human trafficking can have a lot of mental problems because of what they went through. Some victims sometimes will never go back to being the same person they used to be. You should also know where your at and your surroundings.

Dear Gabriel,
I like how you chose to do this topic about human trafficking.This is a topic that isn’t being talked about on the new and I think that if they talked about it on the media it would prevent it from happening as much. This is happening to someone everyday.The victims can prevent them from being chosen because they want everyone. To avoid this happening to you I think that you should avoid being alone always walk in a big group and always be aware of who and what is surrounding you.

Dear, Gabriel i agree with you that human trafficking is something that could happen to anyone at any point of their life. This happening to someone could result in them being traumatized for life because it affects them mentally. Some when they are affected mentally resort to doing drugs to get rid of their pain and forget everything. That isnt always the matter. Doing these drugs will only result in their own downfall. Thats why it best to talk to a trusted someone about it instead of just doing drugs. Its better to get therapy which will help the victim.

Dear Gabriel, I like this topic because this topic needs to be talked about all over the world. Human trafficking happens to a lot of people around the world. They get kidnapped and trafficked across the globe and never to return to there familyThese decisions take over your mental health because you have problems as well in your life which leads you to make this bad decision. These actions can be prevented if people seek help.

I agree with you on this topic of human trafficking especially the part where you said “ Human trafficking can happen to anyone it is a serious matter that really takes a toll on the victim” because no one really pays much attention to this matter cause they don’t expect it to happen to them until it does

I liked this topic on human trafficking because it happens everyday around the world and you may not know it. No one really understands why someone would do this to someone else because it is dangerous and threatening. Watching your surrounding and not letting certain know your location. Keep things private because it can happen to you or someone you know. Human trafficking is really at a stage where, the drugs, alcohol, or some sort of mental state that gets someone to do it and or they want revenge on someone. It is a serious topic because once they take you, no one knows where you are or what they will do to you for their own sanctification. Only 2 percent of human trafficker victims are rescued. Can you only image the ones who are never found and what life may be for them?
