On April 15, 2014, approximately 276 girls were abducted from their school, and reportedly sold into slavery by a band of men who call themselves: Boko Haram (Western education is sinful). The young girls range from ages 12 to 17 and according to AllAfrica, only 53 have escaped.

It’s got to stop! What if this kidnapping situation were to happen at the school that Oprah Winfrey has established in South Africa? Would she be doing something to bring back the missing girls? Could she do anything now to help? How would you feel if this were to happen to one of your children or to someone you may know?

There is always something that humanity can and should do to combat these occurrences from happening besides PRAY for deliverance. People can’t blame God for the way that people treat other people, but we can take a stand as we voice our concerns.

Please take time to sign the petition to help South Africa find the missing children, #BringBackOurGirls. It only takes a minute and it could be a small voice crying in the wilderness, but we’re doing something to help.

Take a full look at the situation from May 2, CNN World News Repost and from the updated coverage from May 4, CNN World News Report. And don’t forget to pray and sign the petition.
