Recently, 300 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped by the Boko Haram. They have tortured and taken the innocence of many of them and have threatened to attack more schools and take more children. They have been said to have sold the girls that they call "slaves" for as little as $12. This isn't right, just because it isn't in our backyards doesn't mean we can't do anything to help. I ask you today to take to what people my age know best, go to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. and take a selfie holding a sign with the #bringbackourgirls. Make sure to tag our government officials in it. If we can be heard, maybe we can give a voice back to the girls of Nigeria that have been silenced.
