CALL 1 800 GENOCIDE...LET'S MAKE GENOCIDE HISTORY

While it is so easy to get in a tizzy over relatively minor things, there are relatively major things going on that cry out for our getting in an uproar. Slaughtering, slashing off body parts, including genitalia, burning people of all ages alive, gang raping females of all ages and torturing human beings - all targeting a specific group of human beings - that is genocide by definition. But it doesn't appear to be a problem for the world to allow this to go on for four and a half years now, in the Sudanese region of Darfur. It's been documented by the African Union troops, which by the way has been their only mandate – to document. We have pictures. It has been reported. Granted for a story of this magnitude, it is under-reported, but the story has been told. Films have been made and distributed. It is easy to find the story on YouTube. And yet, there is no uproar. There is no outcry. There is no priority status for doing something.

We should be ashamed. But we aren't. Somehow it is easy just to not think about it and go about our lives as if nothing is wrong with the human race turning its back on a group of people who are virtually worthless to us. I believe this says who we are as individuals, families, as communities, as nations and as a world that has no moral compass and no heart. How can we let this go on?

And there is plenty you can do. You can use your speech, your voice, your actions and demand that your elected governmental representatives in Washington, D. C. and in your country wherever you live STOP AND THINK WHAT CAN BE DONE TO STOP THIS INHUMANITY TO HUMANITY. If we want something, we can do something about it. These things that we do to one another and these things that we are complicit about are beneath our values.

Don't think that you can't do something. You Can.

STOP AND PREVENT GENOCIDE

IT'S THE HUMANE THING TO DO

"NEVER AGAIN" IS MEANINGLESS WITHOUT THE POLITICAL WILL

Where there is a will, there is always a way

and where there is no will, there is never a way.

We are all the keepers of justice,

OR not.

Democracy doesn't work without "We the People" speaking out.

Use Your Voice.

Be quiet and Darfuri’s die.


All a genocide needs to be successful is for good people to do nothing.


GENOCIDE THRIVES when there is NO ACCOUNTABILITY


YOU COULD MAKE THE DIFFERENCE


WHAT STAND WILL YOU TAKE?
