Side note: On February 14th 2014, I attended the One Billion Rising event at Miami-Dade College in an attempt to fight for justice for those women all over the world affected by violence and sex trafficking. Some women shared their emotional stories of survival after being sex slaves right here in our own city. It was tough to listen to, but being surrounded by such powerful voices was very compelling and meaningful. I encourage you to reach out to other women and listen to their story regardless of who they are. You never know who you might end up helping.
