David L.Barker wrote Stolen Dreams: Portraits of Working Children, in which he described the life of child labor and Iqbal Masih.

Iqbal Masih helped over 3,000 Pakistani children that were in bonded labour, escape to freedom. Iqbal gave talks about child labour all around the world.  He was murdered on Easter Sunday 1995. It is assumed by many that he was assassinated by members of the “Carpet Mafia” because of the publicity he brought towards the child labour industry.

I find it remarkable, that in our enlightened era, we continue to treat people abominably. How can people enslave others? We need to be forever vigilant to improve the world and help in making it a better place to be.
