The small but vocal group gathered in Houston Texas on Saturday has a mother's day message for the men who stole hundreds of school girls thousands of miles distant in Nigeria.

Texan's mothers day message #BringBackOurGirls
We, the world's people will not allow Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram to rest until each one of those girls is returned.

The girl's mothers are so fearful for their lives they won't show their pictures out of fear of retribution.

Who are these men and why would the kidnap innocent children?

I was at this rally and was struck how the children were leading the protest. They led us then and in the future, will lead us as adults.

Happy Mothers day.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
