#BringBackOurGirls


Feeling overwhelmed with emotion and sadness for the Nigerian girls and their families.
#BringBackOurGirls
Now.


As Mother's Day approaches, if your daughter is safe, be grateful. Do not let these girls leave your thoughts. I am trying to imagine them as safe and at home with their families and will support any efforts to get them there. 
#BringBackOurGirls
Now.


I could not get in touch with my son for just two hours yesterday and was about to lose my mind (my 12 year-old) These 12 year-old daughters are at risk of being sold or worse. They are at risk for the unimaginable.
#Bringbackourgirls 
Now.

All I know to do is sign a petition at Change.org, so I did, and I have tweeted with the #BringBackOurGirls. I haven't called my Senator or Congressman, so I will do that today. And now I sit in my freedom and I pray for their strength, their resolve, their souls, their lives. These girls and their families do not have what we have-choices, education, opportunity. Is there a greater global crisis than this that is going seemingly unnoticed? 
How are we not doing more? 
#BringBackOurGirls  
Now.

If you know of other ways to help, could you share them?

Thank you.
