Why are we doing NOTHING?????

I have a question.....as you watch this video how many of you had already heard about this crisis? I am betting not nearly enough, this is shocking and demands attention!

Nicholas Kristof is someone I admire greatly and I have talked about him many many times on this blog, he is a journalist for the NY Times who really sheds light on subjects we ALL need to care about. He is a champion for woman and he not only inspires me to do more but he gives me the knowledge to do so. Todays article in the NY Times was about this situation...... how could this be? 200 girls have been kidnapped? Why is this not the TOP story??? Here is the perfect way that he put this in perspective....
" While there has been a major international search for the missing people on Malaysian flight MH370, and nonstop news coverage, there has been no meaningful search for the even greater number of missing schoolgirls."
Wrap your head around that.
