World News: Hundreds of Nigerian Girls Still Missing CNN Reports (video)

This is heartbreaking. By now I'm certain you've heard about the abduction of about 200 girls from a highschool in Nigeria. The terrible event took place on the 16th of April.

According to reports militants kidnapped the girls in the midnight hours. It is believed that the somewhat 200 young ladies are being sold into sex slavery for as little as $12 each. While these types of disasters occur all of the time, this one in particular has sparked a movement that will hopefully catapult some change.

Nigerian mothers along with others are coming together to protest in the streets, and hopefully coerce the government into action. If their leading officials haven't been moved.. people around the world certainly have. There is a huge "Bring Back Our Girls" campaign going on in social media land. People are doing what they can to at least spread the word of this horrific ordeal.

The below CNN video is very informative, and I hope we'll all pay attention. How can people in power sit back while these babies are suffering through Lord knows what? Something has to be done. You can help spread the word and keep talking about it until someone is moved enough in power to take charge.
