Karla Jacinto’s story

CNN published a disturbing and heartbreaking article today about a survivor of human trafficking in Mexico, a hotbed of such activity. Karla Jacinto was kidnapped from her town at just 12 years old and was raped and abused thousands of times by countless men over the next four years until she was rescued by an anti-trafficking government operation. Her pain and terror are unimaginable to me, and she was incredibly brave to come out and tell her story publicly, especially given how violent the criminal underworld is in Mexico. Kudos to Ms. Jacinto. I will never forget her story.
