Why you should free our girls.
Boko Harem. Does it mean anything to you? An Islamist extremist group, looking to do what they think is right for the world- though we know that's not true.
Slavery was eliminated here a long time ago, Slavery causes pain and woe, something that shouldn't be experienced by anyone let alone the average Joe. Boko Harem thinks they can use slavery and kidnapping as a way to get what they want. We know that's not true.
Girls who have dreams some big, some small. Some who have barley grown out of playing with dolls. One may want to be a doctor tending to the sick, another a lawyer helping the wrongly accused, or a teacher teaching children to believe in themselves. None of these dreams can be achieved, unless our girls are freed.
All girls have talents, but how can they be expressed in captivity? How can you paint if your hands are bound? Or play soccer if you have no playing ground? Sing if you have no music? If our girls were freed they could do this.
Some are tall some are short, some are thin some curvy. All are beautiful. But we know that their beauty will not be appreciated in captivity.
So I ask you this, friends. Each one of you may be a mother, a father, a brother, an aunt, uncle, cousin or godparent. Just think of how you would feel if one of these women was your daughter, or sister, niece, cousin, or goddaughter, or friend. What would you do? Would you sit around and wait for another country to get involved, or would you go and HELP before it is too LATE?
If these girls were American we would jump at the call to save our sisters and daughters from harm. But, since they are Nigerian the U.S will wait for someone else to answer the call. They need help, help that Nigeria is unable to give them- the U.S, or Britian, or how about France? To come and seize the women from these evil men.
