Dove Award-winning and Grammy nominated singer Kari Jobe said she decided to endorse the movie "Not Today," that opens this weekend, with a song because of her passion to fight human trafficking – ministry work that she has been involved with for the last six years.
"It's just an evil, evil situation going on with human trafficking," Jobe told The Christian Post. "A lot of people think it's just happening in other countries but there's a lot going on in America as well."
Producers of "Not Today" are hoping to raise awareness about sex slavery, one of the most critical problems in society today. Today, there are more slaves than at any other time in human history. Roughly 27 million slaves around the world are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will. Women and children are the primary victims in this industry, which is estimated to make profits of over $32 billion. more >>

Furthermore, each year on April 15, every MLB player on every MLB team dons the distinctive number in remembrance of Robinson. more >>
Roger Ebert, arguably the most famous film critic in the world, passed away on Thursday at the age of 70, after an 11-year struggle with thyroid cancer that had left him unable to speak.
"We were getting ready to go home today for hospice care, when he looked at us, smiled, and passed away. No struggle, no pain, just a quiet, dignified transition," his wife, Chaz Ebert, said in a statement following his death.
"I am devastated by the loss of my love, Roger – my husband, my friend, my confidante and oh-so-brilliant partner of over 20 years. He fought a courageous fight. I've lost the love of my life and the world has lost a visionary and a creative and generous spirit who touched so many people all over the world. We had a lovely, lovely life together, more beautiful and epic than a movie. It had its highs and the lows, but was always experienced with good humor, grace and a deep abiding love for each other." more >>
