    What a sad article. These kids are going through hell and clearly it’s hard to feel like there’s a way out of it. Thanks for continuing to educate on this topic.

    Btw, may I use this as your blog description on my page dedicated to my readers: “Current and Historical Issues that Affect the Asia-Pacific Region”? I’d like ppl to know what your blog is about. Thanks!!
