Pick your fight. Take your stand.
What is your priority? Where do you invest time and money? Where is your heart and soul?
The Supreme Court Ruling on Partial Birth Abortion?
The Albert Gonzales/Bush Administration firing of 8 Federal Prosecutors?
The massacre at Virginia Tech and, now the deranged video tape of the killer, reaching out from the grave to exact the ultimate revenge on us all?
The massive suicide murders of 200 in Iraq yesterday? Think of it as Virginia Tech times Six! Twelve more killed today, by the way.
I could easily list twenty more stories. Or thirty. Or more.
They are all important. But please take a few moments of your day and consider the horror in Sudan and Darfur. I've compiled the story below from multiple press reports. All are linked at the end of this story:
In my opinion the actions by the world's so-called leaders amounts to nothing more than posturing and preening. China is chafing under the threats, mostly from French Presidential Candidates, to boycott the 2008 Bejing Olympics. But they still prevent any meaningful United Nations sanctions.
And while President Bush yesterday announce the strongest unilateral sanctions against Sudan, and has continued to place diplomatic pressure on Khartoum, economic leaders like Warren Buffett refuse to divest stock in the Chinese oil companies that fuel Sudan's continued genocide.
Is it progress that a few American politicians at least try to make the news with posturing speeches or congressional confrontations.
Unless you're a six year old sex slave.
