Celebrities are getting involved. Malala Yousafzai isn’t a celebrity so to speak but a super hero, and she (survived being shot by the Taliban at 16-years-old) is calling for the return of the abducted school girls of Nigeria. Boko Haram, the Islamaic militant terrorist group behind the mass killing and bombing is out of control, and stealing young girls is a crime beyond compare.
Abubakar Shekau, the anti-Western leader of the group said he would take the girls and sell them
The protests grow. The Nigerian girls were stolen from a rural school, Chibook Government Girls School in April. Parents are outraged, worried and scared and demand the Nigerian government take action.
Rallies and allies all over the world
Come Together. It’s a sound that is being heard globally, the cries of mothers, fathers and families who are missing their free daughters who are being held captive by Boko Haram. Boko Haram is supposed to mean “Western Education is a sin.” Is it true that what they want is those on the outside to understand that using women to make money in slavery has become a way of life and a necessity in a poor country?
Is Malala Yousafazai in the middle of it all
The empowerment of women scares some people. Why is it that giving young girls and women the same rights as men and boys makes people crazy? The act of slavery in ‘old’ USA was enough to make people go to war but haven’t we fought this fight long enough?
The meaning of freedom and the old order
Young girls and women around the world are seeking to breathe substantive meaning into their freedom, and education is just one of those freedoms. To give meaning to their freedom would be to unite these school girls with their families. Nigerian families are suffering the loss of loved ones and the destruction of their property. A cold-blooded act by the group who wishes to impose control.
Violent opposition to the new world
Solidifying Nigerian families that have been separated by Boko Haram, is the main pillar. Freed people go to impossible lengths to find loved ones. Strong Nigerian family ties become even stronger in the face of abduction and the sale of their children.
Boko Haram is just one of the secret groups devoted to restoring old control using violent criminals to keep the people in line and afraid. If you don’t get this think back to the KKK Klansmen who was not in sync with giving black people their freedoms and established a reign of terror in the region. Such is the life in Nigeria right now.
A new birth to freedom
The struggle to get the Nigerian girls back has not yet become a war, but it will become one. It will be a struggle that pits society against society, with restoring union as its only purpose and to stop the militant control of Boko Haram. The destruction of control will powerfully reshape Nigeria with a new moral spirit.
The conflict will have far reaching changes in the Nigerian government and the hopes of many is in all governments where girls and young women struggle for their freedoms this will become prevalent, freedom of the soul.
Boko Haram threatens to reduce Nigerian girls to the condition of slavery
The Nigerian government will need to enact new laws that and amendments that guarantee the rights of girls and women. Laws that will lead to the principle that because of the gender their citizens cannot be abridged. Giving young girls and women a hand in regulating the transition to freedom and economic autonomy is the only possible way to reform. These new changes are necessary to keep females from returning to what once was a way of life as dependent labor, with limits on their occupations, means to vote, and public funds for their education.
It’s not a Western-thing, but the West leads the way in its freedoms to its females
Boko Haram is unable to accept the emancipation of its young girls. Their rebellion only serves to undermine the policies and freedoms of their women-folk. It’s a conflict of tradition that reaches into political war. The new age of freedom with permanently alter the Nigerian federal system and the definition of citizenship. The ‘West’ has been an example, and it will bring pain and struggle to watch Nigeria go through it’s growing pains, as it was for Malala Yousafazai to go through her pain and struggle by being shot by the Taliban, as a hero to emancipate the young girls in her own country. #Bringbackourgirls.
