In my last post I discussed one of America’s dirty little secrets. Human trafficking, a form of human slavery, occurs daily across our country. Our nation’s highway system makes it easy to transport girls as young as 12 just about anywhere for sex. It’s the reason why a city like Toledo located along Interstate 75 can be ranked 4th among US cities in terms of the number of arrests, investigations and rescues of domestic minor sex trafficking victims. This time, however, I offer an upbeat story involving a girl, her mom and America’s highway.
Kerry Anderson has been called a "road scholar." The 26-year-old Florida woman earned a bachelor’s degree in government from Harvard earlier this year. What is really noteworthy about Kelly is her precollege education. Since she was 12, Kerry and her younger brother Steven have been home-schooled while riding in the cab of their mother Linda’s big rig.
