Have you heard about this?

Little media attention is being given to it.  In the past few days, FINALLY, CNN is talking about it.  I’m now seeing news going up on USA Today, ABC & MSN.  It happened almost a month ago.

300 girls kidnapped in Nigeria.  Fifty escaped.  The rest?  They are being sold into slavery…why?

Because they were being educated.


From CNN’s article:


Boko Haram’s name translates to “Western education is a sin,” and the group especially opposes the education of women. Under its version of Sharia law, women should be at home raising children and looking after their husbands, not at school learning to read and write.

The leader has announced he’s selling them…as brides, and some have already sold for $12.  Selling them, because they dared to learn. These monsters are selling children, and the media ignored it. So many people are unaware.

Know what finally probably caught the notice of the media?  Twitter.  With the #bringBackourGirls campaign somebody started.  I can’t say for certain that’s what did it, but all week, people talked about it…on twitter, and the news said nothing.  Smaller outlets, mostly overseas and I think in Africa did, and some that were geared for the black community.  But nothing in the mainstream media.

Then people started tweeting #bringBackourGirls. All last week, and throughout the weekend.

Now, the media noticed, finally. Last week, you couldn’t find it on the major news sites, and now it’s headlining.  Now the Nigerian president is saying something and acting like he’ll draw a hardline.  Want to add your voice?  Get on twitter, if you have an account and talk about it.  Tweet with #bringBackourGirls.

Their lives matter.  They shouldn’t be ignored.
