Finally, Nigeria’s Kidnapped Schoolgirls Are Coming Home

Photo: Some of the schoolgirls Boko Haram kidnapped in mid-April. 

"On Friday, Nigeria’s government announced it had reached a deal with Boko Haram to release the approximately 200 schoolgirls held captive by the Islamist terror group since April.

The agreement, announced by the country’s defense minister, also involves a cease fire between Boko Haram and Nigeria’s military. The government expects the terror group will not back out on the deal. “Commitment among parts of Boko Haram and the military does appear to be genuine,” an official with Nigeria’s security forces told Reuters Friday. “It is worth taking seriously.”

Boko Haram militants abducted more than 300 schoolgirls from Chibok boarding school in northern Nigeria in mid-April, sparking a worldwide outcry and propelling the group onto to the international stage for the first time. Over fifty of the girls escaped early on. The rest have remained in captivity ever since.”

As reported by Mother Jones 

AWESOME NEWS - this has been such a nightmare to follow, it is so great to hear the girls are being released!

Finally.

Sexual assault is the least funny and most harmful thing you can joke about. Every 2 minutes another american is sexually assaulted. The truly terrifying part of this? 97% of rapists never spend even A DAY in jail. Rape and sexual assault jokes make rapists more confident and empowered, and survivors feel weaker, more insecure and less supported. Stop this behavior guys, stop making rape and sexual assault into a joke. Its only a joke until it happens to you.

Jennifer Lawrence was hungry on the Red Carpet, so Jeannie gave her some Pop Rocks to hold her over until pizza time.

You can see the exact moment where her polite ‘Thank you’ switched into the pure childlike excitement of ‘HOLY SHIT POP ROCKS YEAH’

Okay but look at the reporters face and see how excited she is also.

cute people give me strength

My brother was having a bad day yesterday and asked if he could come pet the dogs. I think they helped him feel better :) There’s something about burying your face in that fluff that makes it hard to keep having a bad day…

In five years not much has changed - my brother still loves these pups so much it will turn his day around after burying his head in their fluffy fur :)
