Will you trade five minutes to help save lives?

"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow man; and along those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects." - Herman Melville

I'm asking you, today, for a piece of your life.

I'm asking you, dear one, for five minutes of your time.

Pray for those in Dafur and then send a letter to your representatives to support putting pressure on Dafur's Arab government to stop the genocide of rape and murder which has resulted in unbelievable suffering and the deaths of 400,000 men, women and children¹ so far.

If it helps to put things into perspective, think of the Janjaweed militia - who are, right now, invading homes, raping and killing peaceful Africans - as Nazis. Think of them as little Hitlers practicing their own "Final Solution."

Because that's what they are.

And think of those at their mercy as family.

Because, in God's eyes, they are.

Please help save your family - our family - today.

Thank you and bless you.

¹According to a new study by the Washington based Coalition for International Justice (CIJ) and experts from Northwestern and Toronto Universities.
