Bring Back Our Daughters

A serious post today – I am sure you are away already – 200+ Nigerian girls were kidnapped by extremists.  Straight from their school.

These brave girls just wanted an education.  I mention this because of my post not too far back on Girl Rising.

I only want to bring this up so we can all use our collective imagination to imagine these girls back home.  If imagination is power and thought has mass – then our thoughts are better put to use by seeing these girls in our minds come back home.

I am looking for other ways to help now as well – but its hard to separate the information from the rage that’s online right now.  And rightfully so.

So perhaps, let’s switch the rage directed to the captors and instead, open our hearts and our thoughts to these girls – send them our love.  They are the ones who need it.  And honestly, those men don’t deserve a single thought from my brain.  But those girls; I will give them my heart.

If anyone has information on ways that people can help please let me know.  I feel I need to help in some small way….

  1. That is horrible. I didn’t know much about this story but if you do find out any way that we can help I would be interested in that information as well.

    It’s horrible when exetremists from any religion or belief take things too far. My heart goes out to those girls as well. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Reblogged this on Cozy Books and commented:
    Things like this are what’s wrong with the world. That such things like abducting girls just for wanting education exist just… disgust me.

  3. some of the most horrible news i’ve heard in a long time. praying. waiting.

  4. I am so glad the West has finally paid attention to a non-Western problem. Yes, the economic crisis is terrible and people are suffering a lot, but there is more to life and the world to us.
