Bring Back Our Girls #3
By: Ms. K
Saturday May 17, 2014 was a special day for my not only was it my birthday, but I also was able to take part in the rally to bring back our girls. Over 230 Girls were kidnapped in North East Nigeria on April 15, 2014 . The girls are between the ages of 12 & 17 years old. They were abducted from their boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria. “Bring back our girls” has finally become world news and government leaders are finally stepping in to make a difference. Even though it took some time for this important issue to get world recognition it is important for these girls to know they are important.
The girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram believes “Westerns education is forbidden.” NBCnews report that last Monday Boko Haram released a video purportedly showing 100 of the girls gathered together, although it was unclear when it was taken.
The girls in Nigeria needs to be returned home because no one has the right to kidnapped because of Boko Haram views that women should not receive education. Education is key to success.
Miami had their rally to Bring Back Our Girls on Saturday May 17 from 10 -12pm in Miami Gardens. It’s very important that we understand that we need for our girls back now. It has been over a month since the girls have been kidnapped and they still are not return. The girls should be back home with their families and receiving their education.
