    Rescue my friends and sisters, not tomorrow, TODAY!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     IfyElueze is a Nigerian Graduate student and is doing an internship in Bonn, Germany. She says her family in Nigeria lives far away from the area where the girls were abucted, but they are very concerned about their safety. "I am deeply affected by this tragedy, especially with the length of time it is taking the Government of Nigeria to come forth with positive result," she said. She posted these photos with some of her fellow interns. IfyElueze has been tweeting about the situation and created an online petition to show her support for the girls and urge the Nigerian government to do more to protect schools.

    Have you stopped to imagine what  may have happened to the 234 abducted Nigerian girls? Waking up to chaos, looking but not seeing through their sleep-drugged eyes that tried to comprehend the uproar as the gates of their hostels were barged into? Or the intensity of their fears as they watched their school go up in flames, while being dragged by the hair, pushed, shoved, roughed-handled and then carted away to fates unknown in the thick forests.


    They have been in captivity for over 2 weeks, reports speculate that they may have been sold into forced marriage. How can the world sit and watch?! It is no longer just the responsibility of the Nigerian Government, now it is your responsibility and mine!


    Please let your voice unite with our voices, CRY OUT: #BringBackOurGirls!
