World magazine has run an important article on the work being done by former Marine captain Brian Steidle to get the United States involved in the crisis in Darfur. The atrocities that are happening there are just too awful to believe.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you need to read Priya Abraham's piece, "Spectator to Genocide." Then you need to go fill out an electronic postcard to President Bush at the "Save Darfur" website: http://www.savedarfur.org.
10 If you are slack in the day of distress,
Your strength is limited.
11 Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
And those who are staggering to slaughter,
O hold them back .
12 If you say, "See, we did not know this,"
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts?
And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work?
For readers in the Dallas area, Captain Brian Steidle will be lecturing here on April 26 at the Dallas Peace Center.
