Everyday that passes, I feel like crying out for help for these girls. I suppose, that I have been doing so all this time without actually shedding tears, but now, I feel like shedding real tears. It is day 76 people! These girls have been in bondage for 76 days, and all we hear is nothing about a real plan to free them. Rather, we read stories told around their fate, promises made but not kept, threats that were not carried out, and fears that these girls may never come back. I do not share these fears though, but I can feel with those who have them.
The fact that Boko Haram continues on a daily basis to harass defenseless citizens with heavy weapons, simply shows that they know that no one can challenge them, not the Military, not the government, not even the foreigners who are said to be helping. I do not believe that Boko Haram is so powerful to defy challenge, I just believe that the people behind them are so powerful to hold at bay all attempts to stop Boko Haram.
These powerful people not only protect and shield them, they also make sure that any attempt to foil Boko Haram’s activities is nipped in the bud. Only God knows what threat they are using to make sure that Boko Haram’s activities in Nigeria continue. Every day is for the thief, but one day will be for the owner of the house.
(We will continue).
