We can't even get the administration to label Boko Haran a terrorist group.
I haven't seen any Muslim concern about the kidnapping. I applaud the
efforts of these young ladies, but agree it will not help much. Maybe we should
arm the Christians that are losing their children.
It sure seems like nobody wants to deal with local problems. I think we should
More compassionate conservative, parroting Will's comment on Sunday.Sad that even when people try and bring attention to world events the usual
suspects attack them.
I comment this group and every other group of people who take time and effort to
demonstrate against this and every other evil perpetrated against women, men,
children and the unborn. Well done and keep it up!!
where are all the liberals who usually scream that we are not the world's
policemen? Why are they not on this board saying - keep out of this, it is not
The taking of these girls is indeed horrible and I sincerely hope they are
returned safely. However, I wish Mrs. Obama and the rest of the demonstrators
would show equal concern for the Thousands of young girls that are being
shaughtered daily in Syria, Lybia, Iraq,and Afganistan. Their plight is largely
ignored by this administration.
While I’m sure that the Boko Haram will not be changing their tactics of
brutality and terror because of a demonstration in Salt Lake City, I applaud
this small group of individuals for standing up for what they believe. Maybe
their voices will not reach as far as the Borno Province but their voices have
been joined by literally millions around the globe. I also wouldn’t be too
quick to judge the motives of the demonstrators.
In Nigeria the war on women is actually real.
Some actions produce results, while others just good feelings in the action
makers and viewers.Some actions are for the sake of righting a wrong,
while others are just so that you and others can see that you did
"good".What are the results you want?Are they good?What do you propose to do that will gain the results you want?Is it
right to point to others efforts that you think may not achieve those results?
Tennerifa (and Town Crier) - What have you done to let your voice be heard.
Great credit to the few that turned out for this event. Condolences to rest of
you who have nothing better to do that ridicule the effort.
Why, tennerifa, would you insert your caustic wit into the picture. Yes, it is
only 30 people and no, it will not change the hearts of the monsters who have
kidnapped these girls. But, why would you mock the sincere efforts of those who
would promote good in the world? Why have you become so laced in cynicism that
the heartfelt efforts of other human beings to right wrongs on this planet bring
out of you only an insult rather than a desire to do some good in the world
yourself? Is it just possible that opening one's heart to good in the
world might lead to local action where we do, indeed, have influence? Thanks Ms. Plothow and others for caring enough to campaign for a better
world. I am joining a FB group in fasting and prayer for these girls and their
families. Spurred on by your example, I will also try to act within my sphere
of influence today to make this world a little bit better.
For once, i agree with a mormon cause. We must put an end to sex trafficking,
forced marriage, abuse of women sexually and otherwise. We want a safe place
for women to live where noone can damage their health, their safety, their
rights and their survival.The only way however, as i am concerned,
is to create association to defend and protect women and allow them to work for
a comfortable living that will allow them to be self reliant and plan their
retirment so that they no longer at the mercy of men who may damage them in may
ways. This until men have learned to treat women properly and not put them at
risk for anything.... and since i am not sure how we can achieve that second
part, i think that for the time being we must orgainise the first part.Stop hurting women.
No doubt that once the kidnappers see a picture of some people holding signs
outside the Utah Capitol, they will immediately free the kidnapping victims, and
send them home with heartfelt apologies.
