Nigerian schoolgirls deserve better #BringBackOurGirls

Rant warning. Unless you've been hiding under a rock, then you've heard about the Nigerian schoolgirls who were stolen. From their school. In the dead of night. By men who at first said they were there to rescue them from nearby fighting.

If you've not read about the Nigerian teenage girls that were stolen, then you can read about it on Yahoo! News. Then, you can read about how the leader of the terrorist group plans to sell the girls. Go ahead. Don't worry. I'll wait.

As many as 276 girls are missing. These girls aren't numbers. Each one has a name, a family, people who love them. People who may never see them again.

Their names are listed below.
Many thanks to @SayingGoodByeUK for tweeting out the list of names. 

Names like Blessing, Jummai, Deborah, Mary, Ruth, Esther, Rejoice, Sayara, Dorcas, Grace... These girls are a few hundred out of the many victims of human trafficking each year. Each of them deserved better.

Maybe you know women or girls who have these names? If so, Rejoice if they are safe and put pressure on our elected officals to act on behalf of those who are not.
