Sound of Freedom: Calling Out America
The theater is packed.
It’s 4th of July.
No one is moving, phones are silenced and so is the audience.
For more than two hours a room filled with regular folks like you and me watch as their eyes are opened to the horror of human trafficking and child pornography.
It’s a pretty disturbing film, done as tastefully as can be expected, but the message definitely comes across.
It’s the story of two young kids who are tricked into a modeling session that turns into life in the deep, dark, world of the sex trade.
The movie aims to garner our attention believing if we see the problem head on, Americans will stand up and say no more.
You can’t help but watch the film and see how distracted we are culturally on issues that impact few when here is something destroying hundreds of thousands of lives and “trafficking” just can’t seem to gain the headlines or reach the social media talking points.
They allude at the end of the movie, trouble they had producing this film. I’ve looked into it a little but not enough to speak intelligently about the hurdles, yet but it sure makes you wonder.
Some kids are freed from such horror but you have to wonder the lifelong trauma those kids have to live with.
A couple of lines from the Bible kept whispering in my ear during the film.
Jesus, in Matthew says. “Truly, I saw to you, as you did not do it to the least of these, you did it to me. and these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
The second verse is: “If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
You wonder how big is the child pornography industry in our country?
Who is involved?
Whatever came of the whole Jeffery Epstein Island and his alleged political “friends” who visited his island?
Why isn’t this talked about more?
Why doesn’t the media look into more deeply?
Are the current talking points distractions?
What does it say about a country that seems to turn a blind eye to such perversion?
There are consequences for our actions and for our inaction.
The film producers hope this movie opens our eyes.
It certainly has opened mine.
