They Have Names


@ShaunKing is posting the names of all 276 Nigerian girls abducted from their school by Boko Haram terrorists. Tonight he posted the first 50. I’ll come back and update this post as more names are posted. Follow him and the hashtags #BringBackOurGirls #BringBackOurDaughters to stay informed on this crisis.

Pray for these girls. Hope for them. Grieve for them. Demand better for them somehow. Raise your voice for them. Whatever it is you do when your loved ones are struck with tragedy, do it for these young girls who have been abducted, stolen from their families and sold into slavery and married off.

  1. Thank you! Thank you for this. I’ve been disgusted by the lack of press coverage and international aid that this is attracting. It makes you sort of lose faith in humanity.
