One Year Later

Tomorrow night, April 14, the Empire State Building will appear in red lights, reminding the public that most of the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists have been in captivity for one year.

Our congresswoman, Carolyn Maloney gave a press conference today outside the UN to urge Nigerian authorities and other influential parties to press for the return of the girls. Sadly, there is evidence that some of the young women have already been enslaved or killed or given as wives to jihadis.

Still, credit is due to the #BringBackOurGirls movement and other groups dedicated to end the violence against women. Our newly-appointed assistant, the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser, who arrives at Incarnation in mid-July has been a leader in this movement in the Diocese of New York. May we keep the poor girls and other Christian victims of terror in our prayers. —J. Douglas Ousley
