“Unspeakable Things Happen”: Blake Lively Breaks Down in Tears Over Sickening Discovery About Child Pornography

Amidst a current news climate that is running rampant with stories about the death of the world’s most famous feline, Grumpy Cat, and a Miller Park Zoo flamingo, I couldn’t help but question, “Where have those same incessant cries for the exploitation of humanity gone?”

While the lives of animals are inarguably important, why are we as humans — and more importantly — as Christians, not raising a [ruckus] over the gross injustice against our own, particularly our children?

In 2017, at a Variety’s Power of Women event in New York, actress Blake Lively gave a riveting speech to ensure we will NEVER forget just that — and I think it’s worth revisiting today.

Lively opened her emotional presentation on behalf of the Child Rescue Coalition in asking, “What is the value of a single child’s life, and what is the value of a child’s life who isn’t our own?” After admitting that she would die for her own two daughters “without a moment’s thought,” Lively challenged the audience to introspect and really decide what the life of just one child is worth.

The actress then pointed to a map covered in red dots, explaining that each of those dots represented a pedophile trading child pornography in real time.

“The sexual exploitation of children is something that isn’t happening rarely, it isn’t happening worlds away,” said Lively. “It’s happening right here right now.”
