A Final Word on Avenged and the close of the Human Trafficking Video Campaign

Dear Friends:

It's coming down to the end of the campaign for Anna And Modern Day Slavery

Some of the feedback I received was incredible.I'd like to share one of the responses I got, as well we a message from Magda herself.
"Dear Jessi:
You may tell your friend that I'm trying to get more money for her movie and that I think what she's doing is a good thing. In fact, my in-class persuasive essay will be about human trafficking."
This young man is only 15 years old, yet his passion demonstrates our link in humanity. We are all connected. It is our responsibility to make the world a better place for our children.

 Isn't she wonderful?

It's a privilege to have such kind and wonderful friends and people in life.

I'd also like to share one of my poems from the eBook, Avenged: A Collection of Poetry.


Open and unarmed I stand unafraid
Appearing alone, I keep great company
It is in silence secrets are revealed
I marvel at the simplicity and purity
Escorting those in need, desire or not.

Upon request, my cup was emptied
Dirty liquid released to stone ground
Enjoying frivolity of weightlessness
Shoulders set back up straight
Confident, simultaneous humility is here.

In time I returned for more
Not emptiness this time, but filling
For all that nurtures comes my way
Recreated and revamped for precious work
Allowing me to serve, gifts intact.

Corrected onto a path of my choosing
The right course for it’s for me
I ask for guidance ad all-knowing wisdom
Prepared, open-heart invaluable
No longer young, grown old.

Thank you for reading my work. Thank you for all of the support. It has been a wonderful journey this month. I wish you peace and blessings. May life bless you with dreams granted.
