#BringBackOurGirls Day 129: What if?

As I have done for the past few months, I have reviewed the news to see if any progress has been made to @BringBackOurGirls. But on day 129 there is a small new story about the Brits possibly dedicating some resources to finding the girls.

I love that this is a positive in this other wise dismal story.

SO many people are focusing on ice buckets this week,and a violent act that I will not name.. important stories as always, but the girls are taking the back seat.

I went to twitter for my inspiration today-

So there it is- what if it was your daughter there? This isn’t as simple as just running up to these guys and plucking your daughter back… you are helpless. You are confused and in pain. It must seem as though no one cares about you or this child.. You would certainly be angry.  Your heart would hurt every hour of the day thinking about how she might be mistreated or worse..

How can anyone sit still and think that this is just a media campaign? These are real girls with real families that are hurting.. and people are hurting them.

There are millions of people aware of this situation, and it must be some consolation that they care.. even if it is just a hashtag.. but it clearly isn’t enough.

There are still sit ins and protests occurring in Nigeria. They of course, have some other issues going on that are overshadowing this.  Tragedies.. all.

I challenged you to do more than send out the hashtag. Did you do it? I wrote to the President. I expressed my concerns as a mom and a citizen. I let our government know that someone HERE cares about the girls and would like to see action. Small step. Sure. But it is what I can do.

I will keep the blog posts going.  My challenge to you still is out- help #BringBackOurGirls.
