Hopefully this social media campaign adds international pressure on the Nigerian government and President Goodluck Jonathan to find the missing Nigerian school girls. As we reported earlier, at least 276 young ladies, ages 15-18, were abducted by an Islamic terrorist group in Nigerian. Earlier this week, President Obama described the abduction as “heartbreaking” and “outrageous.”
The young girls went missing 23 days. Since that horrible day, the hashtag has been shared over a million times. As of this posting, Mrs. Obama’s photo has been retweeted over 22,000 times.
