Freedom Friday and yet another reason why I wish I was a ballerina

I love to dance.

I wish that I was a dancer - a trained one.

Many times when I am listening to music I dance in my head.

Some of my most intimate moments with Jesus have been me dancing in a room all by myself.

I just really enjoy dance - all kinds.  And so I went on YouTube to see what I could find in the world of dance and raising awareness of the issues of human trafficking.  There was definitely not enough in my opinion.

Just one more reason that I wish I was a trained dancer - so that I can choreograph dances and post them on YouTube for people like me :-)

Here are some good ones that I did find:

I love this one.  This right here is why I wish I was a ballerina :-)


Here is another good one:



This is a piece performed by girls who were victims of trafficking



I love to dance (but I guess you got that by now) and I love to watch dance.  

In fact, one of my favorite shows is So You Think You Can Dance.  I have decided that they need to do a number on human trafficking.  I would love for it to be a contemporary piece by Mia Michaels or maybe a lyrical hip hop by Nappy Tabs.  I believe the day is coming...maybe this next season :-)  In fact, if anyone knows how I can contact them, let me know.

Dance is wonderful.  It can tell such a tragic story with such beauty and grace.  I love that.

If you are a dancer, twirl, leap, and be graceful for me  - and use your gift to raise awareness.  I want to see more videos on YouTube :-)

    I so love and admire your heart for the world...

    May God Open the Doors Wide for you
