Bring Back Our Books #BringBackOurGirls


This week I received an e-mail from Ms. Kwambula Asbe Ali head teacher of the Chibok
Secondary School in Nigeria. On April 20th Boko Haram abducted 232 schoolgirls during a physics test. After writing a post “Bring
Back Our Girls” to feature petitions on Change.org and We the People to call for
action on their safe return. I thought about the actions against the school and the
meaning of Boko Haram (Western education is evil)which inspired me to write the head
teacher for a wish list for the school. 
On   GoFundMe, I’ve posted a crowd funding campaign, “"Bring Back Our Girls"”. Ms. Asbe
sent a comprehensive list of the texts books
and computers needed at the school. This is  way beyond my modest goal.  However I remain optimistic to quote Nelson Mandela “It always seems
impossible until it’s done”.
