Today Bill Gates has an iReport Assignment on CNN in which you can ask him a question via video or text message on the very same day CNN also had an article on Human Trafficking entitled ‘Trafficking in Mozambique: ‘Every minute was the worst’.
I would like Bill Gates to explain something to me. As a former Microsoft employee who was originally hired on the day Windows 3.1 was released, I admire and respect Bill Gates. His partnership with Warren Buffet and his wife to create the ‘The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’ leads to only further reason to admire and respect Bill Gates but I still have something I would like Bill Gates to explain to me.
Today, in this very complex and harsh world we live in we have very serious problems, some of which are medical tragedies being acted upon by Bill Gates and his foundation. There are many however that are not related to medicine, not related to war or ethnic conflict that have gone on for a thousand years, but simply man made crimes against humanity that quite simply we as a Human Race have not demanded the Leadership to solve. Crimes like Human Trafficking.
I believe Humanity and life itself demands more of people in Bill Gates position and circle of influence. I know for one if I had their wealth and influence I would be much more active in improving the Human condition that we all must exist and survive, I feel that people with said position and influence have an unwritten mandate to act, to Lead, to Inspire, and to outright demand the halting of such disgusting exploitation of human beings such as Slavery and Human Trafficking.
There is simply no reason under any God you serve that the Leaders of the world, Captains of Industry, Technology, and Finance should not demand of Presidents and Prime Ministers around the world to MAKE AND ACT UPON laws that forcibly remove the practice of Slavery from this planet. This is an actionable and achievable goal and one worthy of the effort required.
There is simply NO REASON, none what so ever, that this cannot be done is there Mr. Bill Gates?
