teen leads fight against slavery

Huh? "Teen leads fight against slavery?" Is that a headline from the year 2007 or 1807?

It's actually a really good article worth your read.

Zach Hunter is a teenager who's decided that it's more important to "BE THE CHANGE" than hope someone else does it. When he first learned that millions of people, including children, around the world are slaves, he knew he had to do something about it. This 15-year old has raised thousands of dollars through the ‘Loose Change to Loosen Chains’ movement, a social justice campaign that smells a lot like Jesus.

Then there is this other guy I know who is a midwest, American college student and has decided to raise money toward abolishing the sex trade on the other side of the globe. The first day he an his naive college buddies decided to do something about it they raised $1000.

The first day.

So... um... what are you doing today?
"...and a little child will lead them." (Isaiah 11:6a)
