May 25th, 2014 - International Missing Children's Day

Today is International Missing Children's Day - a day that tries to stir the talk and draw attention to all the missing children.
It's scary to think about how many children go missing everyday around the world. A lot of times is at the hands of family members, war/conflicts zones are adding to the tragedy along with enforced disappearances.
It is within our power to get informed and be aware. 
We need to show them they are not forgotten.

40 days ago 276 students when kidnapped in Nigeria - they are still missing. The Nigerian government has been slow to react and the international community got active after an internet campaign under the "bring back our girls" slogan that backed the protests of the Nigerian parents.
