It is estimated that this year, 2011, the world's population will be at 7 billion. We should be extremely concerned about this number because of our propensity towards uncivil behaviors that allow us to look past issues like human trafficking. Does 7 billion mean we have so many people that some of them are now disposalable?

What would you do if, today, right now, at the very moment you read this post or some other life event made you decide to face the reality that over 200,000 people (men, women & children) are trafficked into bondage to serve as modern day slaves in your America every year?

What would you do?

How long will you do whatever it is you decide to do?

HMP's inaugural exhibit VIDEO: Click Here
The opening reception @ Wayne COunty COmmunity College went well. I had the opportunity to meet people from the Art Institute of Michigan, Wayne State University, the UNESCO as well as many college administrators. Saffell, one of the contributing artists was there too.

My Big sister, Waduda, my niece, Malika, brother-in-law Musa, and family friend, Nathaniel also made it!

A very great treat was seeing my colleague Mariyam.

I'm very blessed to have so many people supporting this exhibit - like my driving buddy - Alicia. SHe helped me make the drive from rand Rapids to Detroit. We to the opportunity to dine at They Say for the first time. Our dinner was very good.
