My heart bleeds for these (nearly 300) innocent kidnapped school girls in Nigeria and their families. It's Wednesday and I'm wondering if you ever thought something like this could happen in 2014? (Apparently the African loonies who took them look down on "western education," think the girls should be married already rather than learn anything, and have "married" some of these young girls themselves already. They intend to sell the rest as "slaves." Heaven help them if we can't!)

I agree with you..this is just awful and hard to believe that something like this happens in this day and age!  I hope we are able to help them somehow find these girls.  That is so scary!  Definitely makes you want to count your blessings for where we live!

It's beyond control right now and gets more horrific. Not only have the girls been gone for nearly a month, but the militants attacked the village where the search headquarters was located and killed more than 150 people.
