I was on the radio!

Missing Persons

Ok, so this isn’t exactly travel related (I have a post coming up…so stick around), but it is an issue that affects people around the world.

This morning I appeared as a guest on the Santita Jackson Show on WVON out of Chicago. This was my third time being on the show, but this is the first time I had the good sense to record it.

Today, I was asked to talk about a new show called, “Find Our Missing” on TVOne which highlights stories of missing African Americans that usually ignored by the mainstream media.

Although it isn’t a travel story per se, there are millions of missing people reported around the world each year, and human trafficking is a huge issue that tourists, especially women traveling alone, need to be aware of.

So, the next time you see a missing person poster in your town, don’t just keep on walking. Stop and give it a look, you might just help find someone.
