#BringBackOurGirls: Please continue to Pray for the Chibok Girls

May 03, 2014

Am sure by now, most of you have heard of the tragic events going on in Nigeria, West Africa.  In case you haven't, there have been bomb blasts, mass murders, and series of kidnapping. Over 2 weeks ago over 200 schools girls were kidnapped from their school at Government Girls' Secondary, Chibok, Nigeria, by an Islamic Terrorist group called Boko Harram. The sad part is, they have not been found. There have been reports that although some have managed to escape, some have been, or are being sold off to militant men as child brides for a little as $12.

My heart constantly bleeds for these girls, as I cannot begin to imagine what they are going through out there. The constant fear of not knowing if they will make it home, make it out alive, or what will become of them. The constant torture they are going through. I wonder how much food they have even had in the past 2 weeks, if any. There is a huge possibility that they are being raped and sexually molested. What about their parents? Can you begin to imagine the anguish they are going through? Knowing your daughter is out there somewhere, but not knowing where, or if she is alive...

Thankfully, so many people have begun to raise awareness. Hopefully, the Nigerian government will do something. But then again, we cannot rely on them. It's been 2 weeks, and still no news.

Many of us might feel like there is nothing we can do. On the contrary, there is something YOU can do! I am a Christian and I believe in the power of prayers. Dear readers of this blog, regardless of your religion, your prayers will be highly appreciated. Please pray for their safety, pray that they are found, and pray that they return home safely.

You can also sign a petition to the Nigerian government at Change. org  Here .  This petition is not restricted to Nigerians alone. You can sign it regardless of your nationality or race.

Please do not just ignore and do nothing... Remember the popular poem, "First they came". (I have tweeked it)

First they came for the Iraqis,
I did not speak out,
 because I was not from Iraq
Then they came for the Eqyptians,
I did nothing,
because I was not from Egypt
 Then they came for the Muslims,
And I did not speak out,
because I was not a Muslim
Then they came for the Nigerians,
 I did nothing,
because I was not from Nigeria
Then they came for the Northerners,
And I did not speak out,
because I was not from the North
Then they came for me.
And there was no one left,
To speak out for me!

 Thank you!
