It happens here The U.S. is a BattleGround

You read or hear about it in the news: children sold for sex. Sting operations, arrests, recoveries. The language is vaguely familiar; you’ve heard it before. You’re relieved when the event is revealed to have happened in another neighborhood in the state, another city or town in the country. The news places distance between your family and the events in the story. You’d never think it’s happening in your neighborhood, but it probably is.
