If I had the power to end modern day slavery I would. Slavery is when someone is under the control of someone else more rich and important. At the moment there are about 27 million slaves in the world out of seven billion people! Most slaves are from poor countries like India and Africa. They work in fields, brothels, homes, mines and restaurants. Imagine working for hours a day, in a mine or a not very pleasant environment and bought at an average of $90! Kids, adults, and even grandparents are kidnapped or tricked into slavery. It is very sad to watch people getting severely abused or even raped. Imagine you were a slave that was beaten up with a whip twenty million times a day and being fed nothing but rice! How heartbreaking would it be if you were a mother or father that had just lost his/her son and knew that they were tricked or kidnapped into slavery! This all means that we should research more about modern day slavery and try to end it as soon as possible! If I had the power to end modern day slavery, I would make all the owners that bought them an abused them, to pay for their flight back home to their country. I would give them money to eat healthy food for a month to recover or I would give them the money to go to a hospital and get cured from all the whips they got. To get that money, I would set up a charity that people have to donate books and magazines. Half of those, I will sell and get money and half of those I will use to educate those slaves in return for their harsh lives.
