Stories are powerful. William Finnegan has written an article in the current issue of The New Yorker titled The Countertraffickers.  He tells of a modern-day Harriet Tubman in Moldova, the diminutive but powerful Stella Rotaru.  Ms. Rotaru gets calls from Moldovan victims of human trafficking from various parts of the world, including Dubai, and she helps them escape. 

Stories like this inspire me.  People like Ms. Rotaru remind me that the slavers are NOT going to win.  They just got a head start, and we’re catching up.
