Makes one wonder about the world, the scum that inhabit it, and the conditions people allow themselves to live under. Sounds harsh, doesn’t it, but how many children have to die or be sold into slavery before someone in Nigeria will stand and say “Enough!”
Where is the rage? Boko Haram was founded in 2002, and has been responsible for an estimated 10,000 deaths. How can people allow these things to happen? At what point, if your government will not protect you, do you take it upon yourself to fight? I don’t understand.
Shamefully, too, look at the Western world. From Hollywood stars to the prime minister of England, we hold up signs saying, “Bring Back Our Girls.” Are there no men left in this world? What would Teddy Roosevelt or Ronald Reagan have done?
