If your daughter was kidnapped, wouldn't you want the world to take notice, become enraged, and do anything and everything to help get her back? Of course you would.
This is the situation that the parents of 276 girls who were kidnapped from their school in Nigeria are in. Their daughters were taken by the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram. “I abducted your girls,” Abubakar Shekau, the group's leader said in the video. “I will sell them in the market.” But even with knowing who took the girls, the Nigerian government still has not been able to rescue them. And it's been over THREE WEEKS. The students were taken back in mid-April. Yet more girls were reportedly abducted today.
The situation has gotten international coverage, and people all over the globe are outraged, so much so that the United States government is now becoming involved in their recovery.
