I have seen and experienced a lot in the week and a half I’ve been in Bangkok. The city is amazing, the food is delicious and the people are so lovely. And I’ve wanted to post on my experiences so far with the amazing work that NightLight is doing and what I’ve encountered in the Nana red light district.
Unfortunately, I find myself at a loss to succinctly articulate it all… I know that I’m encouraged and inspired by the impact NightLight is making in the hearts and lives of beautiful and precious women. And I know I’ve been in shock over the young, beautiful women I have encountered on the streets selling themselves and just two nights ago, the ones in the bar.
So I’m sharing what Annie, founder of NightLight, just blogged that is painfully up close and honest, and opens my eyes to a perspective I haven’t experienced firsthand, yet, and begs a question that has me feeling the impact of our culture.
I hope you’ll take the time to read it, and be encouraged by the work of NightLight and many others. I am.
