    UN: Children in Haiti Sold for $1.37


    Children in Haiti were being sold to traffickers exploiting the chaos from the past year's earthquake for as little as one euro ($1.37), according to new UN figures reported Monday.

    Some children end up in the care of well-meaning but unaware European families, while others are forced into prostitution, British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported.

    Make me sick!!!
    "Be part of something bigger than yourself"
    "As I have walked through this lifetime, I have realized things are not as they seem. People are not as they seem. Only clues are given about their secret lives and their loved ones are shocked even though the signs were there. Tread carefully in this lifetime and act swiftly to protect yourself and the ones you love."

    Oh bless. I'd be more than happy to take in one of those poor children. Why can't the US except more Haitian children here to be put up in good homes instead of being forced into prostitution? It's such a tragedy.
