On April 14, 2014, the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from the government secondary school in Nigeria's northern town of Chibok.According to local custom, funerals are held after loved ones have gone missing for four months, so that a period of mourning can give families some closure.Hundreds of thousands of other girls in northern Nigeria are now too afraid to go to school, but these girls refuse to be cowed.There is simply not enough outrage – except from young people themselves.It was particularly encouraging to see hundreds of global youth ambassadors from 100 countries descend on New York recently to demand the right to education and to support the Bring Back Our Girls campaign in Nigeria.The campaign for the 219 Nigerian girls – kidnapped simply because they wanted to go to school – is an iconic battle of this freedom struggle.
