    I am so glad to see this powerful group of protestors and I pray the momentum builds until Meriam (so brave and a real woman of God and daughter of Sarah) and her children are released along with thousands of women and children suffering in the same manner in Sudan and other parts of the world. I am especially pleased to see so many men taking up this cause—they are the real examples of manhood in this world. Lord God, have mercy and deliver them from wicked and unreasonable men.
