Unfortunately quite a while back some of our girls were taken from a school in Chibok. To our concern we all hope they are okay, luckily some of them were rescued. Every single one of those girls held captive all have goals and ambitions, which they cannot live. We all need to do something about this horrific action, this happens a lot and it needs to stop. 234 – you see that number, it may not seem that large but just think back to when you were in primary school, that’s probably all the students and teachers maybe even more that were taken.
Many people have probably read about it sat down with a cup of coffee watching Eastenders or whatever not realising how big of a deal it is, I’m sure it would put them into perspective if that was your own child.
You’ve never thought about that though have you.
That could be your daughter, niece, cousin or even your sister, if it was I’m sure you would have been trying to do something. I was watching TV the other day and a woman called Sarah can’t remember her last name said there’s two types of people in this world there’s the selfless and the selfish. The selfless ones are the ones who always put other people before themselves these are the ones who are not related or know any of the girls but are trying to do something. Then we have the selfish ones, these are the ones who read all about it and sit down and be like ‘that’s alright they will find them soon’ and continue doing what they’re doing.
If I could personally award all the selfless people a trophy I would cause there isn’t many of you is there. Not many people realise how big of a problem this actually is, it would be great if we could all try and do something about this and many other abduction/kidnapping cases all over the world.
