Why Don’t Victims of Trafficking Just Run Away?
“Why didn’t you run, why didn’t you say something, why didn’t you speak out sooner?”
These are some of the questions Elizabeth Smart and many survivors of human trafficking are often confronted with. As a reply, Smart answered:
“It’s not because any one of us enjoys being hurt. It’s not because any one of us enjoys being raped or kidnapped. It’s because we do everything we can to survive, and there’s reasons why we make those decisions.”
