Many people feel the United States is the “world police,” What should the United States do, if anything, to address the issue of human trafficking? If the united states should not be involved, who does the responsibility fall on and what should they do to solve the problem? Think about the following question: “There are times to read history, and there are times to make history…. future generations will look back and judge our choices and be inspired or disappointed.” How do you think future generations will judge us?
