Is it Just Me?

One week ago, 29 students were killed in an attack upon a school. The vicious attack, just before dawn, when most of the children and teachers were sleeping. The monsters attacking the school. not only lit the school on fire. but they cowardly shot children in the back as they ran away from the burning school.  Twenty-nine children died and one teacher.

Reports say dozens of children ran into the bush and have not been seen since.

The United Nations Children's Fund, according to the Washington Post, states that Nigerian extremist leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau,  denies killing students, yet 48 children have been brutally killed since June. He and his sick rebels are also responsible for the death of 7 teachers. Boko Haram means Western Education is sinful!

Children being shot in the back, shot in the chest and burned alive...is that sinful, Mr. Shekau? I thought the Islamic religion did not allow harming of women and children.

Children being burned alive in their beds because they are attending a "Western" school instead of an Islamic religious school.

What are we going to do about this? Do we sit back and let another holocaust happen in our world?

Let me tell you how concerned we are about what is going on in our world.

Yahoo reports that the trending searches today are:
Anne Heche, George Zimmerman, Prince William, KTVU apologizes, and (OMG) Food Stamps!

Google's trends for this month are facebook, youtube, google, free, you, hotmail and on and on with mundane keywords.

Bing, oh yeah, Bing's search engine is being used for much deeper searches. Popular searches for the day: Britney Spears, Leah Remini-Scientology, Andrew-someone, Hugh Jackman and Denzel Washington.

This is taking place in Nigeria. Are we doing nothing because Nigeria has no rich resource that our nation is interested in?

So many people are glued to the television to see what the results of the trial of Zimmerman and the death of one child but what about the deaths of 48?  Is it not important because it's "over there"?

I can't directly quote this, can't recall who initially stated it, but I am feeling it today.
