Somaly Mam on the Tyra Banks Show

Somaly Mam is a true hero and inspiration. For those of you who have not read her book, "The Road of Lost Innocence," I highly suggest it. It's heart-wrenching story with a silver lining of hope, survival and service.

There are dozens of great videos with and about Somaly, so you can bet I will be posting more about her. Below are a series of videos from the Tyra Banks show. If you only watch 1 video, watch video #3.

#1 Susan Sarandon - Abolitionist and Board Member of the Somaly Mam Foundation

#2 Somaly Mam- Survivor and Founder of the Somaly Mam Foundation

#3 Nicholas Lumpp & Jared Greenberg - Founders of the Somaly Mam Foundation


Everyone I talk to about modern slavery agrees it's atrocious. Then they ask, "What can I do?" BE A VOICE. Spread awareness by sharing these posts and videos with others. Collectively we can reach thousands of people. Creating awareness and making this an issue in the public mind WILL lead to CHANGE.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
~Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Will you accept my invitation? Will you be a voice?

Thank you,
John Burger
