#BringBackOurGirls One year

Can you believe it has been a year? We have heard little to nothing of late from our Chibok girls, and this week, a positive news story

The girls may have been spotted. A few, not all, but one more family has hope that they can see their daughter again. I cannot imagine the rollercoaster of emotions for them, and their clinging desperation to once again be reunited with family.

The world does not seem to have concern for this campaign. The hashtag has become the topic of jokes. But the pain is still real and the girls are still not home. A year later.

The campaigners as asking us to wear red today to show our support. I will. I you?

It certainly won’t #BringBackOurGirls, but we can show we care.

Green Quotes 4/14/15

“People today have forgotten they’re really just a part of nature. Yet, they destroy the nature on which our lives depend. They always think they can make something better. Especially scientists. They may be smart, but most don’t understand the heart of nature. They only invent things that, in the end, make people unhappy. Yet they’re so proud of their inventions. What’s worse, most people are, too. They view them as if they were miracles. They worship them. They don’t know it, but they’re losing nature. They don’t see that they’re going to perish. The most important things for human beings are clean air and clean water.”
