4. This is sadness personified.

Vanity Fair did a piece a while back on sex trafficking.

Sex Trafficking of Americans: The Girls Next Door
http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2011/05/sex-trafficking-201105?currentPage=all

It is a heartbreaking story no matter who it happens to. The most troubling thing is that these young women are sometimes betrayed by the very people who should be protecting them. The degradation and betrayal is horrifying; and it is something that is done over and over so that the victims never know who to trust. It breaks the psyche into tiny compartments of pain. Life becomes a harrowing nightmare.

I wish I did not know that this is a real problem. It is heartbreaking.
