Real Men Do Not Buy Women ~ They Do Not Steal Them Either


“I abducted your girls, I will sell them.” This is part of a statement by the leader of Boko Haram, claiming responsibility for the mass10295736_516237588486669_3223586064645309200_n kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls, who were mostly between 16 and 18 years old. Over 200 girls were rounded up at gunpoint and kidnapped from their school in the town of Chibok, Nigeria April 14, 2014. They had just finished their final school exams. Boko Haram’s ideology opposes both so-called western education, and particularly women’s education. Some of the luckier girls escaped as the terrorists attacked village after village in a blaze of gunfire. We cannot accept a world where girls are in danger for going to school. What if these were your daughters?

Girls do not belong to any human being.

Women do not belong to men.

Real men do not buy girls and women.

Real men do not steal girls and women.

Every girl deserves an education without sexual and physical abuse.

Every woman deserves an education without sexual and physical abuse.

Girls are not property.

Women are not property.

Men are not property.

Human trafficking is the third largest illegal trafficking racket after drugs and arms trafficking.

What some girls and women have to endure to get that education is unthinkable.A father weeps as he joins other parents of the kidnapped schoolgirls in Chibok.

Being sold is one of the most grotesque examples of human trafficking.

“We must do everything to ensure that the abducted children are retrieved and rehabilitated and returned to their parents, and the military assuredNigeriamap us that they are working on it,” said Kayode Fayemi, of the southern, Christian-majority Ekiti state.

Every woman in the world who can should speak up now in solidarity.

My profile picture is a rose, symbolizing that we should all bloom where we are planted. I am planted in the garden of words of knowledge and inspiration, history and truth, quest and discovery. My latest book, MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS - CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, has uncovered the deepest mysteries of modern time, mysteries that were planted at the start of time. The theme in this book is: There is one race, the human race. It unveils the secrets of Christmas, Santa Claus, the Magi, Jesus and how Noah's sons repopulate the world through the empires. In the process you meet Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Harriet Tubman, and learn that former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are eighth cousins, both with traces of English royalty through William the Conqueror and Charlemagne in their bloodlines. This book uses real history, ancient and pre-history in this dramatic, plausible fiction/fantasy novel. It took me over a year to research and a lifetime to experience.
