Escape From Stormcage December 17-20

Observations from my trip: – life is better when you assume positive intent The most interesting aspect of Vegas for me was the openness of the sex trade and that the abolitionists representing I believe Shared Hope International were holding up signs talking about the shame of Vegas, selling her daughters to sin, but having […]
