Seattle Times letters to the editor

Sex trafficking

Be aware

I want to say I was glad to see the item on the opinion page by syndicated columnist Nicholas D. Kristof [“Sex Trafficking: the evil behind the forced smiles,” Jan. 5]. I have been following his columns on this subject and was glad you elected to publish his column in The Times.

I think this is something we all need to be aware is happening in our world. Sometimes the newspaper is the only way we have of becoming aware.

I am a supporter of the Somaly Mam Foundation and have ordered many of the bracelets made by the young girls they manage to rescue. I do my best to pass them on to my friends and family.

Kristof is a national treasure as far as I am concerned. His dedication to reporting is outstanding. I hope our Seattle paper will continue to publish his columns. Keep up the good work and God bless the American Press.
