Bring Back Our Girls

Over 200 girls were abducted in Chibok, Borno State, Nigeria by Boko Haram on April 14, 2014.  It's heartbreaking, tragic, and unacceptable that most of them are yet to be found.  It is also unacceptable and unconscionable that we don't even have an accurate number of girls that were originally missing, those that were able to escape, and those yet to be found. There are alarming rumors about what may have happened to them. Nigerian security forces have not demonstrated that they're up to the task of challenging Boko Haram and ending this unacceptable situation. Human security is at stake in Nigeria.  In order to begin to inspire the confidence of its people, the Nigerian government needs to focus on this situation and must not relax until it brings the girls back to their families.

The Christian Association of Nigeria released 180 names of the abducted girls  However, there should be no separation between the Christian and Muslim names.  These girls are all God's children.  They belong to all of us.  We want ALL OF THEM BACK!  

We also need to know if this is the entire list of names.
