The wait for the return of our girls is simply unbearable! If it feels that way to me, it must be hell for the parents of the girls. We hear that some of them are so overwhelmed that they are dying. The pain is excruciating!
I am encouraged this morning after listening to the interview of Katie Couric with Mr. Brown, the former Prime Minister of Britain, to learn that the fate of our girls will never be forgotten until they return. This has been my stand and belief all along. So, it is very comforting to know that the world is now paying a serious attention to the problem of Boko Haram in Nigeria, that the world is now seeing this problem as part of a global problem for girls.
Although Boko Haram, in their wildest dream, cannot stop education, especially education for girls, they must not be allowed to disrupt it. It is ignorance that makes a group of illiterates think that denying women education will make them super humans able to subjugate women, because that’s all there is to it, the subjugation of women. It is sad to watch these men who have turned into blood thirsty animals, men with little or no education, men who do not know the value of education, maraud about killing, destroying, and claiming to destroy something they do not even understand.
The girls will be rescued, and Boko Haram will be destroyed. That is the only sane way that this whole drama should end.
(We will continue.)
