Sometimes you just need a bit of good news. Well, here it is:

FBI agents and local authorities rescued 141 adult victims of human trafficking, 84 minor victims of child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation, and have identified 37 actively missing children during a two-week nationwide operation in August dubbed "Operation Cross Country."

The average age of victims in similar operations is approximately 15 years old, while authorities said the youngest victim discovered during this operation was 11 years old. ...

Federal officials arrested 85 suspects of child sexual exploitation and human trafficking offenses as part of Operation Cross Country, which conducted 391 operations over two weeks. Teams included in the operation consist of FBI special agents, intelligence analysts, victim specialists, and child adolescent forensic interviewers working with 200 local, state, and federal partners.

It might be easy to overlook this, but: The people who work on these task forces have to descend to some of the worst, most putrid, most horrifying depths of criminal pursuit imaginable. They are some of the best and strongest people on the planet. They deserve our respect, our admiration and our gratitude.

Well done, folks.
