Red Dress Event

Today is Missing Indigenous Peoples’ day. There’s a display dedicated at the casino I work for. There are red dresses hanging along a wire line that gives homage to all the young girls and women murdered or missing in the United States. In Washington State alone there are seventy-three such victims. 

I have a manuscript that deals with this very topic, called Luke Warm. The premise is that the main character stumbles upon a murdered woman. She was a Native private detective and her partner Nick Roberts helps Luke Warm, a local television reporter investigate who done the murder. Later it’s revealed that a Native Elder is responsible for having young girls abducted and auctioned off to become sex slaves. 

Human trafficking is plain wrong. Slavery in any form has been banned worldwide, yet unscrupulous people with amoral beliefs system continue doing this because it’s another way for them to make money off the suffering of others. It is hoped that those of us with the moral resolve will help in some way to alleviate this spectacle forever.
