A Letter from a Chinese Laborer

Letter from Chinese Laborer Pleading for Help Found in Halloween Decorations

What disturbed me, almost as much as the text of the letter, was the lack of response the letter finder received from various human rights organizations.
The work is plenty but the laborers are few...  There are SO many human rights violations around the world and organizations are overwhelmed and simply don't have the manpower or the ability to respond to each request.  I have run into this issue myself when trying to figure out how to help.
Take it to your church, to your workplace...share the information and then pray, think...get creative.  There ARE things you can do (for instance, the last paragraph that discusses looking for items made in America to purchase instead of China...).  Don't give up hope, don't allow yourself to feel inconsequential.  Everyone has a place in this fight and everyone CAN do something to end these atrocities. 
Proverbs 31:8-9
