I remember when this happened in 2014, I was totally shocked, it was on the news for a while then it disappeared so I lost track of it. Thankfully, negotiations have been going on behind the scenes. How will these girls ever recover; regain their lives? Their childhood has gone forever! I cry when I think of what they have been through, what their parents and relatives have been going through. I saw a picture of the girls and they look shell shocked, lost with a faraway expression in their eyes (my interpretation). I have often been critical of how quickly we offer counselling in the UK when large scale tragedies happen, but in this instance, I have never felt the need for instant emotional support as I do now and I hope these girls will get it.
