The poignancy is not lost that on the eve of Mother’s Day almost 300 girls are hostages of Nigerian terrorists. Many are to be sold as child brides, the others as prostitutes. 

The perpetrators are members of Boko Haram, a Taliban-style group. The armed men raided a girls’ school, saying their education was against Islamic law. The irony of their fate today takes your breath away.
