I have to give thanks to Better Way Imports in supporting my Art Journey! Because of their support I’m improving my craft, making better products, and becoming more confident in the process. It is also an honor to be among the ladies and gents that are the hands and feet of this company, helping the world to be a better place. My work here has a function and a purpose.
I want to plug in again my two very favorite videos by Ted talks on Slavery. I’m fond of Ted talks in general but these videos are educational and inspirational and how I began to have a heart to see an end to human slavery, trafficking and some of the most vulnerable. If you are new to modern day slavery these two short talks are amazing!
Modern Day Slavery: This video was made in 2010 by the co-founder of Free the Slaves. Very informational.
Artistic View Modern Slavery: This video done in 2012 by an artist photographer. More personal view of different slavery that takes place still today!
Thank God who has been and is with me though this journey. I’ll leave you with these thoughts “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Joshua 1:9 KJV
