With everything else I had happening last weekend, I missed this blogswarm. I have nothing to add to Melissa’s wonderful post anyway: Blog in Solidarity: Congo Rape Epidemic
I know it’s horrible. I know it’s the last fucking thing in the world you want to hear. And I beg you to listen, anyway, and expose yourself to that pain, and then go to CARE or Amnesty International and find a way, some way, any way, to try to make a difference. It might be small; it might just be putting your name on a petition. But if thousands of people took time today to put their names on petitions, if thousands of people donated just a dollar, or five, and if each of those thousands of people in turn begged people they know and love to do the same, and so on, it will matter.
