What if It were Your Daughter? #BringBackOurGirls

Brown daughter Missing teeth with a huge smile

Everyday, I have the privilege of kissing this smiling face before sending her off to school and kissing it again when she returns home. On April 15th, 234 moms lost that ability as their daughters were kidnapped from school.  These young women ages 16-18 years old were taken from a school in northeastern Nigeria by a group of Islamic militants called Boko Haram. It is believed that the girls were kidnapped with plans to be sold to the highest bidder. We must do all we can to keep this story relevant and in the news.  What if it were your daughter?
