contact your government about stopping the genocide in Sudan.
Even if you don't care about the people who are dying on humanitarian grounds, think about the impact on the worldview of the survivors.
Nothing breeds violence and terrorism faster than growing up thinking that the rest of the world hates you, because when you asked them to save you and your family, and sat back, and let you starve; let your family die. When you think no one cares about you and your rights, you stop caring about other people's rights; and that's how wars get perpetuated, and terrorist groups get organized.
If we really, actually want World Peace for Christmas someday, we need to pay attention to the violence that's going on in our world, and take the steps we can to try to stop it. If we want to stop terrorism, tommorow, we need to start saving children from being terrorized today.
Thanks for listening...
