Nigeria brutality

Oh, how I was horrified to learn about the abduction of the Nigerian girls in your editorial “Nigeria’s Shame: A Mass Abduction of Girls Must Not Be Tolerated” (May 7). Even with all the mass shootings in America, I am still proud that I can raise my children here. What made me so angry was that the same Islamist group, Boko Haram, killed 1,500 people within the first three months of the year and still the Nigerian president didn’t respond to the violence.

We as Americans don’t tolerate that type of violence, especially against children. I would find it despicable to be ignored when such violence is occurring. It’s amazing that the United States is willing to take a stand for a country that is not invested in its own children and future.

What is it going to take for Nigeria to wake up regarding the persistent violence, continuous abduction and abuse on the citizens? Someone needs to stop the savages and bring the girls home.
