This is one of the most intriguing and touching pieces I have read. It's important for people to know what is going on in the world, especially when it's about child slaves.
I was shocked to read about children being bought for 50 cents! That same child may be resold for as much as $300. They have to work hard and are beaten and starved. I have so much compassion for those kids.
Most people are clueless about what is going on with children in Africa. Something should be done to stop kids from being ripped from their families and childhoods.
